Hear from our scholars
“SgIS is not all about a career. Activities organised by the SgIS Scholars’ Network EXCO such as “University Club Orientation” or community activities like “Love on Wheels” allowed me to contribute back to the society and at the same time gave me an opportunity to interact with fellow SgIS scholars from other organisations and widen my network.'
Chua Xin Pei
SgIS Full-Term Scholar with ST Engineering, Graduated from Nanyang Technological University, Materials Engineering with Business Minor
“I am proud to be able to work not only in Singapore – where all my friends and family are, but also in a Singaporean born firm that is growing steadily to establish itself as one of the leading communication design and production houses in Asia. SgIS has given me a head-start in mapping out a career path I am passionate about. I am grateful for the internship opportunity and the network of many other scholars who share the same passion in contributing to Singapore’s strategic industry sectors.'
Er Shu Qin
SgIS Mid-Term Overseas Scholar with Kingsmen Creatives Ltd, Graduated from University College of London, Geography
“The beauty of this scholarship is that you get to work closely with your sponsoring organisation and this will help you to make a clearer decision of the area you want to specialise in during your early stages of education. This makes your academic journey more focused and fruitful. I definitely look forward to interning with my sponsorship organisation, Novartis. There is no better way to learn than to experience the working life and understand the complexities of the job.'
