AMCHAM ENDOWMENT SCHOLARSHIP FUND
In 2018, AmCham together with SMU, launched the SMU Global Innovation Immersion Award (GIIA). Under this program, AmCham awards up to 6 scholarships annually to SMU students to participate in a summer internship under the Global Innovation Immersion program with a start-up in the San Francisco Bay Area or Boulder, Colorado. Students have the opportunity to participate in a 3-month overseas internship with high-growth innovative American companies, develop future-ready skills and expand their students’ global entrepreneurial network. After returning from their internships, students are invited to form meaningful business connections with AmCham leaders and member companies, and learn from industry leaders. AmCham hopes that this program will develop and groom Singapore’s next generation of business leaders who will continue to build economic ties with the American business community.
AmCham is continually adding to the endowment through honorariums that are given as a token of appreciation for the speakers at our events. These donations are made in their name.
