SINGAPORE – Pre-university students with a passion for mathematics, science and engineering can tap a new scholarship from early next year.
Funded by the Ministry of Education (MOE) to deepen the pool of engineering and technology talent here, it aims to benefit 200 students each year.
Education Minister Chan Chun Sing announced this on Wednesday (May 11) during a ceremony to mark the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) and James Dyson Foundation, a charitable set-up started by the British inventor.
The engineering and tech programme scholarship is part of MOE’s efforts to strengthen Stem (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education and facilitate the flow of Stem talent further upstream, particularly in engineering.
