Muhammad Farouq Bin Osman


Muhammad Farouq Osman graduated from the National University of Singapore Scholars Programme with a Bachelor of Social Sciences in Sociology. His desire to empower the lives of fellow Malay/Muslims led him to join Singapore’s Council for the Development of the Malay/Muslim Community (MENDAKI), a government-organised non-profit aimed at uplifting the minority group. As a research and policy officer there, he has been responsible for examining implications of government policies – in areas like family, education and employment – on the community. One of his papers, on the effects of social capital on Malay/Muslim educational performance, was published in the Singapore Policy Journal at the Harvard Kennedy School. Farouq is pursuing the Cambridge MPP in order to gain the tools necessary to examine issues affecting disadvantaged Singaporeans from a more holistic vantage point. Ultimately, he hopes to influence policy towards a more equitable Singapore.
