NUS Now Offering Social Entrepreneurship Focused MBA Scholarship

Award is valued at 6,000 SGD; aimed at students interested in social entrepreneurship or philanthropy

The National University of Singapore has announced the launch of a new MBA scholarship that's aimed at students interested in social entrepreneurship or philanthropy.

The "Lam See Chiew Memorial Scholarship in Social Entrepreneurship and Philanthropy" is valued at 6,000 SGD, and is open to all admitted candidates of the NUS MBA program. Part-time students are also eligible, as are those pursuing double-degree MBA programs; although double-degree candidates will only be able to apply the award towards tuition for the MBA program.

Candidates should demonstrate active interest in the social entrepreneurship, nonprofit, or philanthropy sectors, or have worked in one of these sectors for at least five years. 

One scholarship will be awarded. The recipient will have to commit to active participation in the school's Asia Centre for Social Entrepreneurship and Philanthropy, in a variety of capacities. Additionally, the "successful candidate would be expected to remain fully engaged with the social entrepreneurship, philanthropy or non-profit sector post-graduation," according to the school.

All MBA candidates who have accepted an admission offer are invited to submit their applications for the award. For more information, please see this recent NUS blog entry.
