FASS Student Leadership Award

The introduction of the FASS Student Leadership Award (FSLA) commemorates the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences’ 85th Anniversary in 2014. The FSLA recognises student leaders beyond academic excellence, and aims to reward students who demonstrate student leadership, foster experiential learning, and enhance outreach activities within FASS and the wider community.

NUS President Professor Tan Chorh Chuan identified the importance of cultivating students with “i-NUS qualities” during his State of the University Address in 2013. Inquisitiveness, Imagination, Initiative, Inner resilience, Inclusiveness and Integrity are some of the qualities that the FSLA recognises in its student leaders – individuals who can serve as role models for their peers and also as future alumni ambassadors for the Faculty.

The FSLA will be launched in AY2014/2015 and awarded each academic year, with values of S$300 or S$500 for each individual or group respectively.
