At OCBC Bank, our philosophy is to nurture talented and outstanding individuals by providing them with challenging and rewarding opportunities to help develop their full potential through quality education. Since the 1970s, the OCBC Public Scholarship has been providing financial assistance to help bright and promising youths in achieving their ambitions.

Apart from financial assistance to support both tuition fees and daily living expenses, we also provide our scholars with priority internship opportunities to gain hands-on experiences while working on projects. Take a sneak peek at our day-to-day operations and leap at the chance to network with our professionals.
