NUS rolls out entrepreneurship friendly scholarships

Speaking of innovation, National University of Singapore (NUS) has introduced scholarships for first year undergraduate students who are keen on starting their own venture upon graduation. The scholarship will cover tuition fee and living expenses for four years of undergraduate studies and allows recipients to apply for seed funding of up to S$50,000 for their start-ups, upon graduation.

Awardees will also have access to mentorship and guidance from NUS Enterprise as the entrepreneurial arm of NUS. To be granted with it, students need to demonstrate a keen interest in creating start-up companies, on top of academic excellence and outstanding leadership qualities.

The scholarship titled “Stephen Riady Young Entrepreneur Scholarship” is made possible by a gift from renowned Indonesian tycoon Dr. Stephen Riady.
