FASS Graduate Students HELP Fund
|Most Singaporeans and NUS students know of businessman and visionary Lee Kong Chian's philanthropic contributions. What is less known is that he started his philanthropic career even before he had become wealthy. All of us, regardless of the level of our individual wealth, can take a cue from his philosophy of “benefiting from society and spending on society”.
It is in this spirit that the Lee Kong Chian Graduate Scholars of FASS mooted the idea of a fund in 2012 to provide financial aid to an enrolled graduate student, in case of an unexpected crisis. The Fund, previously known as the FASS Graduate Student Emergency Fund, has been relaunched in February 2016 as the FASS Graduate Students HELP Fund with a concerted effort to raise more funds and awareness about the Fund. (Click here for more information.)
A committee in the Graduate Studies Division will review all fund applications, and grants of up to S$2,000 will be presented to eligible candidates.
We urge the FASS graduate community to contribute to this Fund. All other well-wishers, including FASS faculty and staff, who would like to donate to the fund are very welcome to do so.
We thank you for supporting the FASS Graduate Students HELP Fund.
