Singapore Aviation Scholarships

SINGAPORE : A new working scholarship has been announced for the aviation sector to attract high-calibre students from the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) and polytechnics.

Speaking at the Aviation Open House at Downtown East on Thursday, Minister of State for Transport Josephine Teo said the Aviation Horizons Scholarship will enable companies to recruit ITE or polytechnic graduates immediately upon graduation.

Together with the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore, the companies can then sponsor the youths for part-time studies for higher qualification.

She said the scholarship aims to allow students to acquire work experience in the aviation sector, while they pursue further studies.

Mrs Teo also announced the Aviation Youth Outreach Seed Fund, which aims to expand the range of aviation interest activities currently organised for youths by the industry, associations and student groups.

She said the Seed Fund can support new ideas put forward by groups to nurture a passion for aviation in youth.

Both the initiatives are part of the S$9 million Aviation Manpower Programme (AMP) launched last year.

It aims to build the aviation manpower base through the attraction, development and retention of talent.
