SUSS Spirit Award

This award recognises and honours Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS) full-time students who reflect the 'Heart' part of our educational philosophy of 'Head, Heart and Habit'. The people-oriented, social-centric value set that we want to recognise and honour includes honesty, integrity, commitment, resilience, moral courage, service to others, social change leadership and selfless contribution to society.

Award winners are expected to demonstrate excellence in at least one of the following three categories of attributes: (a) character strength; (b) willingness to help others; and (c) social change leadership.

The SUSS Spirit Award is not open for application. Instead, we welcome nominations from students, faculty and staff members. External parties with direct contact with our students (e.g. those offering work attachments) may nominate as well.

Nominators have to complete a nomination form, and where applicable, provide supporting evidence. A selection committee, comprising SUSS faculty and staff, will review all submitted nominations. Shortlisted nominees will be invited to present themselves for an interview by a panel.

Ten awards valued at S$2,500 each will be given for the academic year, subject to the quality of nominations. Each award will be translated to offsetting the tuition fees for about three 5-credit unit courses.

Award winners are expected to fulfil responsibilities such as being SUSS ambassadors, helping out at outreach events.
