Scholarship Guide 2020 Vol. 2

Publisher’s Note

Taking the unprecedented start of 2020 in stride, we recognise that it serves as a reminder of how unpredictable the future can be.

We have often heard the phrase that, “change is the only constant”. In this day and age, it is critical that we remain flexible and creative in our ways to keep up with the evolving work landscape and stay equipped amidst unprecedented events.

Against this backdrop, our theme for this publication “20/20 Vision: The Future In Perspective” echoes the importance of seeing our future with the right perspective; because how we see things ultimately determines how we do things.

Although no one fully knows what the future holds, we can trace the beginnings of an innovative path ahead by looking at how businesses today are adapting their practices to strategically position themselves in the marketplace. With our rapidly evolving world, the challenge for all of us – governments, policymakers, business leaders, workers and teachers – will be to come up with solutions and skills that will help us adapt and contribute to the future economy.

It is clear that there is no running away from the inevitable myriad of changes and advancements coming our way. So what does the next decade look like for students and business professionals?

In this publication, we hope to answer these critical questions as we dive into key topics that are actively shaping our world today. Using our current reality as the lens through which we see the future, we hope you glean valuable knowledge and insights compiled in these pages.

We have also highlighted several successful scholars and graduates who have agreed to share their authentic journey and personal experiences with you. Hailing from different disciplines, backgrounds and studies, we hope their stories, as well as, the added exclusive features such as insider information and rewarding career opportunities, will further inspire and equip candidates in their scholarship search and future prospects.

On this note, Scholarship Guide would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all our partners, contributors, readers and candidates for choosing us as their preferred platform for scholarship and career-related matters. You may access our materials both online and in print.

We hope you enjoy this publication as much as we did putting it together. Our team continually works hard to provide you with quality resources, information and support to ensure your pursuit for higher education is seamless and enjoyable.

We wish all of you the very best in your future endeavours.
