Scholarships & Bursaries

The NEW Scholarship

The National Environment and Water (NEW) Scholarship was launched in 2008 by the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources. The NEW Scholarship is an undergraduate scholarship targeted at students who have a keen interest in the dynamic environment and water sector. The NEW Scholarship is jointly offered by the National Environment Agency (NEA) and PUB, the national water agency. The NEW scholarship aims to ensure sufficient talents in specific areas of expertise and skills in the organization.

The National University of Singapore (NUS) and NEA have agreed to collaborate and provide students enrolled under the Bachelor of Environmental Studies (BES) Programme the opportunity to apply for the NEW Scholarship.

The collaboration between NEA and NUS will support NEA in building up its talents in specific areas of expertise and skills and help NUS ensure that better students are sufficiently trained under the BES programme and be able to join NEA with minimal training and orientation.

The Silent Foundation

The Silent Foundation was founded in July 2010 by Mr Teng Ngiek Lian, and is a registered charity in Singapore. Mr Teng came from a humble background and he recognises that much of his success is due to assistance and mentorship given by many selfless people he had encountered. As such, he felt the strong urge of doing the same for those who are less fortunate in life. The Silent Foundation helps and gives relief to the poor and needy persons in Singapore and elsewhere, preserves nature and the environment as well as cares for and protects animals.
