What is the Energy-Industry Scholarship?
This is an industry scholarship for those pursuing relevant engineering courses at the local Institutes of Technical Education (ITE) and polytechnics. The scholarship will cover the student’s tuition fees, one-time allowance (to purchase items related to his or her studies, such as a computer and books) and a monthly living allowance.
Besides a full-term scholarship, the EIS also offers a mid-term scholarship to those who have already commenced their studies. The bond period will be commensurate with the total scholarship value. Applicants interested in applying for a mid-term scholarship will need to have at least one academic year of studies remaining at the point of application.
How do I apply for the EIS?
You may submit your application online via the Powering Lives portal during the application cycle which starts in December and closes in March. This application period is applicable whether you are applying for the Full-term or Mid-term scholarship.
For more information, please refer to the link here or email EMA_HumanCapital@ema.gov.sg if you need further assistance.
How will I be notified of the outcome of my scholarship application?
Successful applicants will be notified by the respective sponsoring organisations via phone, email or post.
If I am currently receiving a bursary/scholarship, can I apply for the EIS?
The EIS is meant for students without any existing bursary or scholarship.
