Gardens by the Bay is committed to support and nurture individuals who are keen in joining our family to realize and sustain our vision - as a people’s garden for all to own, enjoy and cherish.
We are offering Scholarships to candidates who are passionate about Horticulture, and possess a keen interest in pursuing a long-term career in this field. The Gardens will support our Scholars in embarking on their tertiary journey, with challenging and rewarding career paths and job rotations mapped out upon their return.
Scholars can expect a rewarding experience - where passion is inspired and expertise is nurtured.
Our Scholars will undergo an orientation programme to help them assimilate into our culture and get a headstart as a new member of the family.
Personal mentors will be assigned to our Scholars, to ensure that they are well-guided and given holistic advice on potential career paths and progression, as well as academic and personal matters. Scholars can also tap on their mentors’ wealth of knowledge and experience, and learn from the personal anecdotes of our veterans.
Our Scholars will be paired up with a buddy to help them integrate into the culture and feel at home, which are crucial components at the initial stage of embarking into working life.
Our Scholars will be subject to job rotations in key departments, for greater and wider exposure of the Gardens’ operations, and for them to understand the intricacies of what it takes to run a horticulture-based attraction.
Scholars will have the chance to participate in strategic work committees, or take on secretarial positions in management meetings and projects. This will ensure greater exposure for our scholars at a macro-level for leadership grooming.
