Who would be MAD enough to want to change our world?
The Philip Yeo Initiative (PYI) is a cause, a rallying cry, for those who believe in passion and purpose to invest in the next generation of leaders to contribute to making a difference to our world. To support this vision, we have two focal programmes:
Philip Yeo Innovation Fellows Programme
Support individuals who has their own MAD project/ idea with funding, mentorship, access to business incubation services and opportunities to attend networking events and other activities. Demonstrating the PY attributes of passion and commitment to making a difference, PY Innovation Fellows will embark on their own project with the support of the PYI over one year. Each award, valued up to S$20,000 is awarded to individuals who meet the criteria and passed the selection process.
Philip Yeo Grant
Enable passionate and entrepreneurial students to participate for up to one year in the unique NUS Overseas Colleges (NOC) programme to gain invaluable skills outside the classroom through start-up internships, international immersion and entrepreneurship experience. Each grant, valued up to S$5,000 is awarded to needy students to help cover their overseas living expenses for the duration of the programme.
