New Bursary Uplifts Future Healthcare Professionals

The Ti Sui Tsu Bursary at SIT will provide permanent support for Nursing and Allied Health undergraduates – thanks to a new endowed gift made by the Ti Sui Tsu Memorial Fund

In honour of Ms Ti Sui Tsu’s 100th birthdate on 12 April 2020, the Ti Sui Tsu Memorial Fund made an endowed gift to the Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT), to establish the Ti Sui Tsu Bursary in support of Nursing and Allied Health students at the university.


The late Ms Ti was a pioneer in the nursing profession in Singapore and had a career spanning over 30 years. She was among the first batch of six local nurses who were promoted to Ward Sister at Singapore General Hospital in 1951, and retired as Matron in the 1970s. She was passionate about helping those in need, especially nursing students. After her passing in 1988, she bequeathed her estate to several charities including the Barker Road Methodist Church, which set up the Memorial Fund in her name. In accordance with her wishes, they have supported many needy students.


The Ti Sui Tsu Bursary, valued at $5,000 each, will support deserving undergraduates in SIT’s Nursing or Allied Health programmes. At least seven bursaries will be awarded annually and in perpetuity.
