DPM Teo to govt scholars: Stay focused to ‘serving’ Singapore and Singaporeans
Posted by temasektimes on July 23, 2012
Speaking at the Economic Development Board’s annual scholarship ceremony, he said:
“Remember, when you study, and you work, you’re not working just for yourself, or your company, you’re working for Singapore and Singaporeans. That’s the most important and the most satisfying bottom line that anyone can have.”
Ten Singaporeans received the Economic Development Board scholarship this year and they will be studying in universities in the United States or Europe.
Singapore government scholars are guaranteed a ‘golden’ rice bowl upon graduation after which they will rise rapidly within the ranks of the civil service.
