by Dubaiforum

Saito University College in Malaysia is teaming up with TikTok Shop (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd to launch an innovative scholarship program geared towards empowering the next generation of digital entrepreneurs.

The collaborative initiative aims to support students who aspire to pursue careers as influencers or affiliate marketers rather than traditional academic paths. This shift in career aspirations highlights the changing landscape of employment, especially in the gig economy. The scholarship program is designed to cater to these evolving needs and aspirations, providing financial assistance to students interested in digital content creation and entrepreneurship.

According to Professor Dr. Vinitha Guptan, Vice Chancellor of Saito University College, this partnership signifies a significant milestone in education and digital entrepreneurship. It demonstrates a commitment to equipping students with the skills and opportunities needed to thrive in the digital age.

Nur Azre Abdul Aziz, Acquisition & Partnerships Lead at TikTok Shop, expressed excitement about the collaboration, emphasizing the importance of nurturing talent and promoting digital entrepreneurship to enhance students’ lives. The program, the first of its kind in Malaysia, offers two full scholarships and 100 partial scholarships to talented individuals seeking transformative opportunities in the digital realm.

By providing students with training and skills through the TikTok Shop program, the scholarship aims to not only foster innovation but also enable aspiring digital entrepreneurs to build sustainable careers and support themselves and their families. This initiative exemplifies a commitment to inspiring greatness and igniting hope for a brighter future for students.

Students interested in applying for the scholarship can reach out to Mr. Hoh Wing Onn, Chief Operating Officer of Saito University College, for further instructions. The collaboration between Saito University College and TikTok Shop represents a unique opportunity to bridge the gap between academia and digital entrepreneurship, paving the way for success in the ever-evolving digital landscape.
