YONG FONG LIM AND WONG YOK HIN SCHOLARSHIP (2015)
Mr Yong Fong Lim was born in 1920 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and operated a small business out of his house providing photography services. He witnessed how education positively changed the lives and economic conditions of those lucky enough to complete their education after the Second World War. Determined to give the best to their children, Mr Yong and his wife, homemaker Madam Wong Yok Hin, devoted their resources to educate their children.
Their children, Mr Yong Voon Chen (SDE, ’90) and his siblings, donated to this endowed Scholarship to honour their late parents’ beliefs and to appreciate their personal sacrifice, hardwork and determination. The Scholarship is open to all NUS undergraduates and is tenable yearly.
