The Chong Pang and Dymon Asia Scholarship for Social Impact seeks to nurture promising university students into effective leaders of positive change. Instead of straight-A academic qualifications, the overriding criterion for the scholarship is the ability, desire, and track record of the candidate to effect positive change in their community.
Every year, the Chong Pang Citizens’ Consultative Committee and Dymon Asia will award up to six undergraduate university students with scholarships. Scholarship recipients will be awarded $6,000 for the first year, and $10,000 for the subsequent years of their undergraduate education.
Dymon Asia is collaborating with the Nee Soon GRC to deliver on social impact. Recipients of the scholarship are expected to make significant impact to landmark community development projects within Nee Soon GRC, and are expected to contribute at least 30 hours of community and social work per month during their scholarship tenure.
The sponsor for these development projects will be Minister of Foreign Affairs and Law, and MP for Chong Pang Constituency, Mr. K Shanmugam. Dymon Asia is collaborating with Chong Pang Citizens’ Consultative Committee for the scholarship administration.
The scholarship targets Singapore citizens residing within Nee Soon GRC, who are undergraduate students enrolled in National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technology University, Singapore Management University, Singapore University of Technology and Design, and Singapore Institute of Technology. Exceptional Singapore citizens beyond Nee Soon GRC will also be considered.
Applicants pursuing academic disciplines of geared towards social impact will be given preferred consideration. Examples of such disciplines include public policy, social science (e.g. social work, political science), communication studies, information technology, economics and business.
Applicants can submit a single application to be considered for both the Dymon Asia Scholarship for Social Impact, as well as for the Chong Pang Scholarship for Social Impact. The deadline for the application is 20 December 2014. Interviews of shortlisted candidates will commence shortly after the deadline closure.
