MaritimeONE scholarships

Captains of Industry

MaritimeONE scholarships

It takes a village to raise a child. Similarly, it takes a collective effort from the industry to develop the next generation of talents.

On 8 August 2019, a total of 43 MaritimeONE scholarships were awarded by 19 companies, with a total scholarship amount valued at over S$1 million, at the annual MaritimeONE Scholarship Awards Ceremony. These sponsoring companies hail from all sectors of the maritime industry – port, shipping, maritime services, shipyards as well as an institute of higher learning. This is the highest number of scholarships awarded since the programme’s inception, and reflects the industry’s collective effort to invest in the next generation of talent.

MaritimeONE scholars are able to choose from a spectrum of 34 degree courses across maritime and non-maritime subjects offered by local and overseas universities, as well as three maritime diploma programmes at the Singapore Maritime Academy in Singapore Polytechnic. Since 2007, a total of 385 MaritimeONE scholarships worth more than S$10 million have been awarded to outstanding students to pursue courses locally and abroad.

Students pursuing non-maritime subjects are also welcome to apply for the scholarship. In 2019, MaritimeONE awarded four students pursuing non-maritime degrees such as Business Management, Industrial and Systems Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics and Business Analytics. As the industry continues to evolve and grow in this digital age, maritime employers are on the lookout for individuals with a wider range of skill sets to steer their organisations to success.

Gardens by the Bay

A Cuban Adventure

Gardens by the Bay

Paul Chong, a Gardens by the Bay Undergraduate Scholar, is certainly going places. The second-year student at Cornell University had the opportunity to experience firsthand Cuba’s agricultural systems as well as its present-day responses to climate change. Here’s his perspective of the Central American country:

In Havana, the capital of Cuba, we saw its extensive urban agricultural systems and were treated to a meal produced with predominantly locally-grown produce. Cuba’s government acknowledges climate change in its constitution and has produced a 100- year plan, the Tarea Vida, outlining measures to mitigate the threat. These include intensive reforestation projects, and we visited one such successful site, the Sierra del Rosario UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

I was also fortunate to have seen several unique Cuban flora found nowhere else in the world, including the “pregnant palm” Colpothrinax wrightii and the cycad (a prehistoric group of plants) Microcycas calocoma. Two other plants that stood out, though not found exclusively in Cuba, were the Royal Palm, Roystonea regia, and the Silk-Floss Tree, Ceiba pentandra. Roystonea regia is used extensively in formal landscaping in Singapore and is Cuba’s national tree. It is an important multipurpose tree in Cuba, with its leaves used for thatching, fruits to feed livestock, trunk for timber and roots as medicine. Ceiba pentandra, known as Kapok in Singapore and parts of Southeast Asia, has spiritual importance in the Afro- Cuban Santería religion, and we saw offerings such as cigars and chickens at the base of trees in Havana.

I am grateful for the opportunity to broaden my education through firsthand experiences in other countries.
