About the Donor

The Bursary is made possible by a gift from Mrs Yi-Lin Tan and Mr Foong Sheng-Wei, in memory of their late father Mr Foong Hock Meng. In 2015, the Foong Family Bursary was established by Mr Foong Hock Meng to help make a positive impact on the lives of financially disadvantaged undergraduates at SIT. His children hope to continue upholding this spirit of giving through the Foong Hock Meng and Family Bursary.
