TEAM BUILDING BLOGGER
SCHOLARSHIP AWARD
BY GRINESS SINGAPORE

We are believers of science at Griness. We are of the firm opinion that scientific research should be disseminated outside of the academic circles.

We believe that voicing out the thoughts of students coming from various backgrounds on certain issue is vital to developing newer concepts, perspective, development and ultimately innovation.

The moment when the currently prevalent boundaries are pushed past the traditional heights established by the stereotypical education setup, students are given a new sense of direction to push towards new heights and use their brain power to expand their skill sets and reach their true potential.
