Cityneon’s growth and success is the result of supportive partners, vendors and suppliers who believed in us when it was not obvious nor realistic. We were the recipient of both grace and generosity, of which we earnestly seek to reciprocate. Hence, it is the ethos of Cityneon Group to give back whenever we can.
We have integrated active volunteerism and sponsorship programs into our business plans as part of our endless pursuit of paying it forward to people and places around us. By engaging communities through our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs, we strengthen the symbiotic relationships between our company and the community we serve; creating a positive difference in the lives of all who cross our path.
Cityneon firmly believes that education paves the way to excellence. That is why we started the Cityneon Holdings – SUTD Scholarship in 2019, to support the younger generation in pursuing their passions through learning and deepening their knowledge. This year, we are delighted to present our SUTD scholarship to another young talent, to support his academic journey as he receives a strong, multi-disciplinary STEM education.
Across the world, many communities face structural challenges, including long-term unemployment, lack of access to proper healthcare, and low literacy rates.

Cityneon has always been a strong believer in the importance of educating the younger generation to develop a greater breadth of skills to evaluate and apply knowledge in ways that meet the new demands of our changing social and economic landscape. As an extension of our belief, the Cityneon Holdings – SUTD Scholarship is established to encourage academic and learning excellence by attracting outstanding talent to pursue their undergraduate education at Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD).
