Endowment Scholarship Fund
The AmCham endowment scholarship fund was established in March 2004 when the AmCham Board of Governors launched a year-long capital campaign to support the then-fairly new Singapore Management University which was modelled after the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. AmCham member companies provided a gift of $400,000 to SMU which then was matched by the Singapore government making the total endowment $800,000. Our endowment scholarship is a permanent fund that retains its value in perpetuity at SMU.

Since 2004, the income earned on the principal gift has provided a full scholarship for students to attend SMU. By 2016, the endowment fund has been used to support students to participate in internships in the U.S.

Every year, AmCham awards 6 scholarships to SMU students to participate in a summer internship with a start-up in the San Francisco Bay Area or Boulder, Colorado. The Global Innovation Immersion program is a 3-month overseas internship with High-Growth Innovative American companies. The internship aims to develop future-ready skills and emphasizes the cultivation of a Growth and Fail-Forward Mindset.

In addition to the endowment, as a token of appreciation for the speakers that speak at our events, we also make donations in their name for the scholarship fund at SMU.
