The scholarship aims to develop more cybersecurity talents.
Cybersecurity service provider Ensign has donated $120,000 to the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) to establish the Ensign InfoSecurity–SUTD Mid Term Scholarship to develop more cybersecurity talents.
The scholarship is Ensign’s inaugural partnership with an autonomous university to provide aspiring talents with the opportunity to pursue cybersecurity as a career.
Starting 2022, one Year 3 student specialising in security track from SUTD’s Information Systems Technology and Design degree programme will be awarded the bond-free scholarship every year. The student will receive $30,000 to defray tuition or study-related expenses.
“We believe that more deserving students will be able to equip themselves with the necessary knowledge and skills to help fill the gaps in the cybersecurity sector and advance Singapore’s digital drive and transformation efforts,” SUTD vice president for administration Giselia Giam said.
