Temasek Foundation Scholarships

The Temasek Foundation Scholarships honour the legacy of three outstanding union leaders who tirelessly championed for the welfare of lower-income workers and advocated for access to certified training and skills upgrading. The Scholarships support students (and their families) from lower income backgrounds by providing annual living expenses and a family incentive component for the duration of study. Eligible incoming freshmen including mature students are welcome to apply. Details can be found here:
