Singapore's OCBC Bank has teamed up with two local universities to launch a postgraduate artificial intelligence scholarship.
The scholarship will be open to applicants of the masters AI programmes at both the National University of Singapore (NUS) and the Nanyang Technological University (NTU).
To begin with, three students will be awarded scholarships this year, getting up to S$100,000 each, fully covering all educational and living expenses.
OCBC says the move is part of its digital strategic framework and that, after graduation, scholars will spend between 12 and 18 months at its AI lab.
Ken Wong, head, AI Lab, OCBC, says: "As we delve deeper in our AI journey, we are looking to attract and develop top talents to create new roads for us."
