NG GUAN MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP (2014)
Mr Ng Guan, a member of Singapore’s Pioneer Generation, was a dried-goods merchant at Ellenborough Street in River Valley for more than three decades, retiring in 1985. In bringing up his children, he inculcated in them the importance of a good education and the same values of integrity and hard work that enabled his family to thrive, instilling in them a sense of responsibility and a positive attitude to life. He passed away at the age of 85 in January 2009.
This Scholarship was established in his memory, for Filipino and Singaporean students who are in their second year of study and have performed well academically. Mr Ng had an affinity for the Filipino youths as his youngest son lived in Manila for many years.
NG PECK LIAN AND TAN TENG HIAN SCHOLARSHIP (2015)
The Ng Peck Lian and Tan Teng Hian Scholarship is a full-term scholarship awarded to Singapore citizens for undergraduate studies in the Humanities.

This Scholarship also honours their legacy to their progeny: a legacy of honesty, hard work and frugality as well as the need to care for the needy and less-fortunate in society.
NGEE ANN KONGSI DISTINGUISHED SCHOLARS PROGRAMME (2009)
In 1845, the Ngee Ann Kongsi was formed by a group of prominent Teochew leaders from Ngee Ann county in Canton (Guangdong), China. The Kongsi was first established for the welfare of Teochew immigrants. As time passed, many Chinese immigrants settled in Singapore and focused on making sure their children had a good future through education. As such, the Kongsi broadened its focus to cover education, setting up schools and giving out scholarships and bursaries.
These Scholarships established by NUS with generous gifts from Ngee Ann Kongsi are awarded annually to Singaporean and Singapore Permanent Resident (PR) students in financial difficulty and who have excellent academic achievements.
