2015 SgIS Award Ceremony
Ninety-two students received the Singapore-Industry Scholarship (SgIS) at the 2015 SgIS Award Ceremony held on 28 August. The ceremony was graced by Mr Heng Swee Keat, Minister for Education.
Whilst studying in university, SgIS recipients undertake induction programmes, internships and mentorships by senior management, as part of the SgIS Scholars’ Development and Engagement Programme. The Programme enables them to develop skills and gain industry-relevant professional experiences with their Sponsoring Organisations, expose them to have a broader perspective and nurture a culture of serving the community. It also helps recipients have greater certainty and clarity about their passion and career aspirations, integrate into the workplace much better and faster and contribute even more meaningfully as future leaders of key industry sectors in Singapore.
