Yale-NUS College is one of the 21st century pioneers in liberal arts education in Asia. For Santander it is an honor to be one of the founding benefactors of this renowned institution, which will be represented by the top talented students and faculty members from Singapore and around the world. Higher education plays a vital role in the economic and social development of a country. Santander’s institutional commitment to universities is one of the hallmarks of our bank’s identity.

The Santander Scholarship & the Santander International Experience Scholarship was established with a generous gift from Banco Santander. The Bank has a presence in ten main markets. It is the largest bank in the euro zone by market capitalisation.

Through its Santander Universities Global Division, Santander has collaborated with universities for more than 17 years on a unique global initiative which distinguishes it from other national and international banks and financial institutions. The Santander Universities Global Division has an alliance with 1,100 academic institutions over the world.

Santander Universities has been a stalwart supporter of the National University of Singapore, establishing a variety of programs at NUS including the Santander Students Mobility Program, Santander Undergraduate Research Exchange (SURE), Santander-NUS Doctorate in Advanced Risk Management Programme and the Santander Chair for Mobility of Young Faculty & Researchers Programs. The bank is also a supporter of Yale University.

The Santander International Experience Scholarship will support exchanges, overseas internship and professional experiences for Yale-NUS students. For more information on the Santander International Experience Scholarship, click here.
