Meet current scholar Kirsten Lim

Being at Warwick has truly opened my eyes to the world around me. The everyday learning and conversations have offered me new perspectives, while volunteering with Warwick in Africa last summer has enriched my life in ways I never thought possible.

Now, I experience life in a more colourful way – I may not have everything figured out yet, but this scholarship has been a springboard to such incredible opportunities, and I look forward to continuous personal and professional growth. I feel empowered to be who I want to be, and I am excited to see what my last year at Warwick has in store for me! "

Meet alumnus Chandra Prakash

I graduated from Warwick in 2019 with a degree in Accounting and Finance. I am now based in London and employed by KPMG, one of the Big Four accounting firms.

My time at Warwick has instilled in me the confidence and ambition to believe that I can achieve more. The skills I developed during my time at university have also benefited me greatly in the workplace. None of this would be possible without the help of the Singapore Scholarship.
