Thanks to an endowed gift from OUE Limited, a permanent scholarship has been established at the Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) for academically talented students who also have a proven track record as leaders in their co-curricular activities and in community service. At least one and up to two scholarships (valued at $10,000 each) will be awarded annually – and in perpetuity – starting from the upcoming Academic Year 2021/22. 

The OUE Scholarship will be applicable to Singapore Citizens and Singapore Permanent Residents pursuing any undergraduate programme at the university. 

Prof Tan Thiam Soon, President, SIT, said, “We are very grateful for this gift from OUE Limited, as nurturing graduates who can be catalysts of transformation in the community is integral to SIT’s aspirations as a university. We trust that the OUE Scholarship will encourage the recipients to grow into their full potential as service leaders for the future.”
