A holistic programme that develops young talents age 21 and below who demonstrate a passion for Chinese music
The Mapletree-TENG Academy Scholarship was established in 2018, and is an ongoing partnership between Mapletree Investments and The TENG Academy.
The scholarship is a holistic programme that covers a rigorous training scheme of constant assessments and individual lessons with professional instructors from TENG. In addition, scholars will also be involved in community outreach programmes where they will perform at homes, dialysis centres, hospitals and hospices.
By covering the full tuition fees of instrumental lessons, grading examinations and course materials for a period of 2 years, it aims to nurture a generation of Chinese musicians in Singapore who will contribute back to society with the skills that they have attained from this programme.
