NAC Local Undergraduate Scholarship 2003 - Open for Application

 

Applications for the National Arts Council (NAC) Local Undergraduate Scholarship 2003 are now open. All ‘A’ level students with a keen interest in pursuing a career in the arts may apply for the scholarship.

 

First launched in 2001, the NAC Local Undergraduate Scholarship aims to attract talents with a passion for the arts to join the Council and contribute to the growing arts scene in Singapore. Upon graduation, the scholar can look forward to a challenging and fulfilling career with the Council. He or she will be given excellent opportunities to explore various aspects of arts management and be groomed to take on key positions at the Council.

 

With an annual value of S$5,500 in addition to tuition and hostel fees, scholars are required to serve a four-year bond upon completing their course. They will also undergo eight weeks of practical training at the Council during the second year of their studies.

 

The scholarship has since been awarded to three outstanding students. Last year’s recipient, Kok Tse Wei, is now reading a Degree in Communication Studies at Nanyang Technological University. This growing fraternity of scholars includes the first batch of scholars, Sophia Loke and Sylvia Low, who are studying Arts and Social Sciences at National University of Singapore and Communication Studies at Nanyang Technological University respectively.

 

Application forms can be obtained from NAC at 140 Hill Street, MITA Building, #03-01 or from the NAC website at www.nac.gov.sg. Completed forms must reach NAC within two weeks after the release of the year 2002 GCE ‘A’ Level results at the following address (Please indicate "NAC Undergraduate Scholarship Application" on the top left hand corner of the envelope):
