It has been a vision of His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam that the next generation of Bruneians will be equipped with outstanding leadership qualities, ready to take their country forward in the face of the rapid changes now facing the world.

It was with the intention of realising this vision that the Supreme Commander of the Royal Brunei Armed Forces Scholarship Scheme was first introduced in 2005. The scheme has aimed to attract and groom exceptional young leaders to contribute in areas of defence and security with the Ministry of Defence and RBAF in particular, and with Brunei society as a whole.

The aim of the Ministry of Defence in introducing this prestigious scholarship scheme ultimately is to provide high calibre youths with the best education from the world's most esteemed universities and military academies and with suitable welfare support in order to properly nurture this learning.

As esteemed individuals, scholars under the Ministry of Defence scholarship schemes will have outstanding co-curricular records to supplement their excellent academic abilities. More importantly, scholars are systematically groomed to be equipped with the attributes that will make them effective leaders who one day will become the movers and shakers of Brunei Darussalam.
