The Tan Ean Kiam Foundation has made a gift to the NUS Science Faculty to fund scholarships for the Tan Ean Kiam Graduate Fellowship in Science. Starting in 2013, the prestigious scholarship will be awarded to one deserving PhD graduate every four years.
The gift signing ceremony, held at the Shaw Foundation Alumni House, was attended by the Chairman and Vice-Chairman of the Tan Ean Kiam Foundation, Mr Homer Tan and Mr Tan Keng Leck respectively. Professor Andrew Wee, Dean of Science, graciously acknowledged the gift and explained it would help spur further developments and recognise the achievements of graduate students in science. He also said that the Tan Ean Kiam Graduate Fellowship in Science will be a highly-regarded award that will enable the Faculty of Science to groom the next generation of outstanding students.
The late Tan Ean Kiam was known for his passion for contributing to society and his goal of grooming future leaders. Today, the Foundation stands strong in supporting and encouraging organisations in their efforts to foster education to achieve the same goal. This donation to the Science Graduate Fellowship further serves as a testament of their commitment to nurturing young talent in Singapore.
