On August 4, six students from Singapore Polytechnic - three from the School of Digital Media and Infocomm Technology - were delighted to be officially awarded scholarships for their educational pursuits in the creative and media industries in Singapore. The MICA Awards Ceremony 2011, attended by Minister Dr. Yaacob Ibrahim and affiliated executives and officers commemorates the celebration of young, bright scholars receiving support from the various statutory boards such as the National Heritage Board, National Arts Council and Media Development Authority of Singapore (MDA).

A few lecturers from DMIT also came by to support their students in the ceremony.

One of the recepients of the Media Development Authority scholarship, Vicki Lau, makes a brief statement on the well-attended award ceremony.

“It was exhilarating to be surrounded by so many like-minded, talented individuals who were specially selected by the different creative and media statutory boards. It was a splendid opportunity to meet them and be part of it all as well.” She described.

Having graduated in May 2011 as an institutional gold medallist (with the Chua Chor Teck Gold Medal), the MDA Scholarship will support Vicki's studies in Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) in the city of Atlanta, Georgia. Vicki has also been awarded the Academic Honors Scholarship Award and Artistic Honors Scholarship from the institution in the United States.

“Being overjoyed is an understatement - I am on cloud nine! I am truly grateful my efforts and skills were acknowledged by the Media Development Authority.” She exclaimed. “Of course, it all goes back to my humble beginnings here in Singapore Polytechnic and the School of DMIT as well. Undeniably, SP and DMIT have a great share of my gratitude for this achievement.”

Congratulations to the six scholars from Singapore Polytechnic!
