Tanoto Scholarship

Aimed at developing the next generation of leaders who are future-ready, we partner with National University of Singapore (NUS), Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and Singapore Management University (SMU) to provide our scholars with a holistic leadership development programme. Beyond financial assistance to deserving undergraduate students, the scholarships also equip the scholars with structured leadership skills training, community service and networking experience.

Stories From Our Scholars


Sharen D/O Asif

I was given the platform to improve my communication skills and become a more effective leader through the Tanoto Scholars Leadership Program in December 2019. This program has shaped me to become much more outspoken and I feel more confident in voicing out my views to my peers as well as my tutors.

My gratitude cannot be expressed with words, but I want to say that I am very grateful and honoured to be trusted with the Tanoto Scholarship and that this means a lot to me and my family. Very excited to meet the team and join Tanoto Foundation’s events!

I hope to be able to give back to the community both in the capacity of a law student and a Tanoto Scholar, to join the School of Law Outreach Club in providing Pro-Bono services, as well as involve myself heavily in Project Sukacita as an organising team member.

Leadership Development Training and Workshops

We believe in the importance of equipping our future leaders with knowledge and skills to lead effectively and responsibly, so that they are able to make a positive impact in the communities in which they live and work. To develop these critical leadership competencies, we provide Tanoto Scholars with a structured leadership development journey through a series of workshops throughout the course of their undergraduate studies.

Project Sukacita

Through this annual ground-up community service project, Tanoto Scholars work together to volunteer and contribute towards enhancing the quality of health and education of the under-privileged communities in Singapore and beyond. Through this experience, Tanoto Scholars are also able to hone their leadership skills, gain regional exposure and network, which are all crucial to prepare them for their future careers.

Tanoto Scholars Annual Networking

Tanoto Scholars Annual Networking (TSAN) is an annual event aimed at forging stronger bonds among Tanoto Scholars and alumni in Singapore. At the event, Tanoto Scholars come together to meet the Tanoto family, welcome new scholarship recipients and network with one another. In addition, the scholars also have the opportunity to further engage and learn from our distinguished speakers on various topics such as leadership and the importance of lifelong learning.
