S'pore Power scholarship for ITE, poly students

SINGAPORE - Twenty-one students from the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) and polytechnics got help to "power up" their education yesterday.

They were the pioneer batch of students to receive a scholarship for ITE and poly students launched by Singapore Power (SP), a leading energy utility company.

The scholarship is one of the newest initiatives by the company to develop people to work in the power sector.

It is awarded to current electrical and mechanical engineering students from the ITE or polytechnics who have completed their first year of study.

The students are selected based on their academic results, aptitude and passion for power engineering, said SP.

Students in the polytechnics will receive $24,000 over their course of study, while ITE students will get $11,000.

They will be required to work in SP for two years after they graduate.
