GlobalFoundries is offering scholarships to undergraduate students in Singapore who want to pursue their university education either locally or overseas. The move is part of the company's participation in the Singapore-Industry Scholarship (SgIS), a partnership between the national government and private enterprises.

Under SgIS, successful applicants will be placed under the direct guidance of their respective sponsoring organisation. SgIS scholars will receive internship opportunities, field trips, professional training and development programme, and many other local and global immersion activities, to prepare themselves for their career with the company.

"Semiconductor manufacturing is the highest contributor to Singapore's electronic sector output. As a responsible corporate citizen," said KC Ang, senior vice president and general manager of GlobalFoundries Singapore. "We want to encourage and draw talents from the community we operate our business in, and be part of it to promote and groom the necessary talents for our future semiconductor industry."

"The career opportunity in our industry is abundant. Because of the sophisticated nature of our business and the technology innovations we create, people asset is therefore important to us. Our people are given the opportunity to carve out their niche in technical and non-technical field. As an employer, we are providing an avenue for them to fulfil their dream and become part of the success enabler of our company and industry," Ang added.

Being committed to providing organisational learning and development for employees, GlobalFoundries Singapore also offers scholarship grants to current employees who are pursuing their Ph.D through Industrial Postgraduate Programme (IPP) Scholarship; and Educational Assistance Program for employees who are keen to pursue their studies on part-time basis.
