SINGAPORE - Four tertiary students have been named as the inaugural recipients of the Energy-Industry Scholarship (EIS), which aims to develop and nurture talent for the power sector.
The four recipents are ITE College West student Muhammad Rafiuddin Bin Samsudien, Singapore Polytechnic students Teo Wen Xuan and Noor Nashriyah Jalil (Polytechnic Awards), and NUS undergraduate Tay Wei Jia.
They will go on to join companies such as Singapore LNG Corporation, Singapore Power and YTL PowerSeraya.
The Straits Times reported that Mr S Iswaran, Minister for the Prime Minister's Office and Second Minister for Home Affairs and Trade and Industry, gave out the scholarships at a youth dialogue under the Singapore International Energy Week on Wednesday.
Launched in January 2014, the EIS covers a student's tuition and hostel fees, while also providing a monthly living allowance. It is open to Singapore citizens and permanent residents who are commencing their studies or have started on their programmes.
The next scholarship application will open in December this year.
