NAS Academy, GRAB offer scholarship for Southeast Asian content creators

Here’s you chance to learn from the best for free!

Grab and NAS Academy, the training and development arm of NAS Daily will roll out a GrabForGood x NAS Academy Creator Course to help 100 budding content creators across Singapore, Malaysia, and the Philippines.

The program aims to uncover stories of Southeast Asia and provide a platform for micro and small business owners, including Grab driver- and delivery-partners, to share their experiences in adapting to the new normal. 

Under the course designed and conducted by NAS Academy instructors, the 100 selected participants will get to hone their skills in scriptwriting, video filming, and editing, as well as publishing. During the course, they will get personal feedback on their content from the trainers, as well as access to a virtual digital lab where they can get live feedback and tech support. Two hundred videos will be produced by the participants, with a focus on how Grab’s partners have demonstrated resilience, and adjusted during this challenging period. 

“NAS Daily started with a mission to tell stories about people, and we want to be a force for good in the communities we operate in. However, we are aware of individuals who may not have access to resources to become content creators who can tell stories about their communities, ” says Nuseir Yassin, founder of NAS Academy. “By partnering with Grab, we are able to democratize storytelling with a structured program, as well as provision to mentorship and resources to interested individuals. We hope that this partnership can help participants realize their dreams of becoming content creators who can make an impact in their respective communities.”

At the end of the four-week course, all graduates will be inducted into the GrabForGood Fellows alumni, whereby Grab and NAS Academy representatives will continue to engage for mentorship and video creation opportunities. The graduates will also have access to trainers, exclusive stories, resources, and perks from Grab, and a library of copyright-free music to help them continue with their video production journey for a six-month period after graduation.

The program is open for application to all budding content creators, including Grab’s driver-and delivery-partners who are interested in honing their video production skills. Interested individuals can submit their applications via the NAS Academy website starting Dec. 14, 2020. Application closes on Dec. 28.
