About the Donor

This Study Grant has been made possible with a gift from the Estate of the late Mr Lim Doa Hin. Born in China in the 1920s, Mr Lim sailed to Singapore as a feisty young man after World War II. He had only spare change in his pocket and rags as clothing but, undeterred by such unfavourable conditions, he rose to become a successful and reputable Teochew businessman. Despite his achievements, Mr. Lim remained humble. He always remembered the need to contribute back to society, especially to assist exemplary students who require financial assistance in their educational needs.
