Student Relief Fund@SIT (COVID-19)

By making possible this Fund, some 186 donors are giving their support to those of our students who have been hit the hardest by the pandemic. Will you join them?

Thanks to prompt action from these generous donors, more than $2.2 million in gifts have been made towards the Student Relief Fund at SIT (COVID-19) that was established in 2020 in response to the outbreak. This Fund has disbursed grants to 690 students at the Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) thus far, and will support even more students in the months ahead.

The Student Relief Fund at SIT (COVID-19) provides grants (of up to $2,000 each) to undergraduates at SIT who are facing financial emergencies as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, the ongoing catastrophe that can derail their university education.

Fundraising efforts are still ongoing and we very much hope for your generous support, so that even more vulnerable students at SIT will be supported!
