About the Donor

The Bursary is made possible by a gift from SIM People Development Fund Limited (SIMPDF), which was set up to support Singaporeans in realising their career potential through access to learning pathways and experiences. SIMPDF was incorporated in 2020 with seed funding from the Singapore Institute of Management (SIM), as an extension of the latter’s mission to do social good. SIMPDF was granted IPC status in March 2021 in recognition of it as a charity that benefits Singaporeans and Permanent Residents.
