About the Donor

The Bursary is made possible by a gift from Er. Stephen Leong. As a practicing Professional Engineer (Civil) in Singapore and a Chartered Structural Engineer in the UK, Er. Leong understands the rigours one must goes through from university freshman to industry professional. Being a university athlete during his student days, he believes a full university experience is not limited to academic achievement but also includes being an active member of the community within and outside the institute. Through this bursary, he hopes to help students in financial need experience the university life they deserve.
