24 July 2017, Singapore – 21 outstanding individuals have been awarded the National Arts Council (NAC) and National Heritage Board (NHB) Scholarships this year. The scholarships nurture promising individuals who have the potential to drive the development of Singapore’s arts and culture sector. The NAC has committed approximately $1.4m to 18 scholarship recipients to support talent development in the arts sector while the three NHB Scholarship recipients will receive more than $530,000 to further their studies. The broader range of disciplines supported by the scholarships over the years reflects a scene that is growing in sophistication. We hope that the scholarships will continue to encourage talented individuals to explore varied careers in the arts, heritage and culture, and contribute to the development of the landscape.
