Derwin Pereira offers scholarship at Nanyang Business School

In April 2021, Mr Derwin Pereira, Founder and CEO of Pereira International, launched the Derwin Pereira Scholarship at Nanyang Business School (NBS), Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU).

Starting in Academic Year 2021/22, the Derwin Pereira Scholarship will be awarded to an outstanding student pursuing a full-time degree at NBS. The merit-based scholarship aims to recognise excellence in academic performance and scholastic achievements of tomorrow’s emerging business leaders.

The selected student will receive a one-time scholarship in support of their tuition fees and living expenses.
