Encouraging Overseas Exposure
Wednesday May 24,2017
“SICC is delighted to continueits close collaboration with SMU and help more deserving students gain international exposure, learn more about the outside world and their own potential.”
Mr Victor Mills
Chief Executive, Singapore International Chamber of Commerce (SICC)
In supporting SMU’s goal of ensuring 100% of its students benefit from an overseas experience, the Singapore International Chamber of Commerce (SICC) made an endowed contribution of $400,000 to strengthen its International Exchange Scholarship.
First established in 2005, the scholarship aims to create new opportunities for eligible students to spend a semester at an overseas university.
Each year, three scholarships are awarded to students who demonstrate outstanding academic results, leadership skills and active involvement in the university and community.
Since its inception, 51 students have gone abroad for overseas exchange programmes, particularly in the US and ASEAN, thanks to the scholarship.
