From May 2023, Institute of Technical Education students who achieve good academic results will be able to apply for a new scholarship launched to support the next step in their education. 10 scholarships worth $6,000 each will be given out each year.
The merit-based scholarship will be open to those who wish to pursue any structured vocational training or apprenticeship programme. The scholarship will also be open to those who opt to start working first, before deciding to pursue further studies and training.
There are no restrictions on the field of study for scholarship holders. In contrast, scholarships offered by other organisations to ITE graduates are often targeted at specific fields.
Minister for Education Chan Chun Sing said that the scholarship would greatly benefit ITE students, who are a group in need of support within Singapore’s education landscape.
