DUNEARN ROAD HOSTELS/SHEARES HALL ALUMNI SCHOLARSHIP (2009)
Sheares Hall (SH) is fondly known as the family hall of residence at NUS. Established as the Dunearn Road Hostels (DRH) in 1952, the Hall was renamed Sheares Hall (SH) in 1982 after its relocation to the Kent Ridge Campus. The Hall serves as a family away from home for its residents, creating strong bonds between its residents past and present. In 2009, a group of passionate DRH/SH alumni began fundraising to establish the DRH/SH Alumni Endowment Fund to enable financially-challenged students to stay in the hall.
The Fund supports the DRH/SH Alumni Scholarship, which recognises hostel residents who excel academically while actively contributing to the hostel.
DUNEARN ROAD HOSTELS SILVER JUBILEE AWARD (1977)
The Dunearn Road Hostels (DRH) was established in 1952 as a cluster of semi-detached five-room houses in College Green. Among DRH’s first residents were the overseas undergraduates of the University of Malaya located in Singapore. In 1977, DRH celebrated its Silver Jubilee by raising funds from its alumni to give back to the residents at the hostel. With the funds raised, the DRH Silver Jubilee Award was initiated in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the hostel.
The Silver Jubilee Award is awarded to encourage and recognise outstanding residents’ contributions to the hostel.
