SingTel unveils scholarships for poly students: news.asiaone.com

Top students from three polytechnic courses will now be able to get a head start in their fields, with telecommunications giant SingTel offering diploma scholarships for the first time.

The SingTel Cadet Scholarship Programme, developed with Singapore Polytechnic (SP) and Republic Polytechnic (RP), aims to nurture talent in the areas of computer engineering, cyber security and customer experience.

Unveiled at SP yesterday, it is the first time a telco has offered diploma scholarships for polytechnic students. SingTel introduced a scholarship programme for undergraduates in 2010.

"It is our people that differentiate us from the competition," said SingTel group chief executive officer Chua Sock Koong, adding that the telco hopes to build a pipeline of talent in the three areas to meet future needs.

"We need to attract the right kind of talent early, so that they can develop and grow their careers with us."
