Capital! SITizens Get a New Bursary to Count On
The newly established Bond Capital Bursary at SIT, made possible by Mr Lim Sze Wee, will nurture deserving undergraduate students throughout their entire course of studies from Academic Year 2023/24 onwards
Future undergraduates at the Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) who are eligible for financial aid can look forward to a new source of support beginning in Academic Year(AY) 2023/24, when the first two Bond Capital Bursaries will be awarded.
Made possible by a generous endowed gift from Mr Lim Sze Wee, the Bond Capital Bursary (valued at $5,000 each) aims to support first-year students enrolled in any full-time degree programme offered at SIT over their entire course of studies. At steady state (from AY 2026/27 onwards) at least four and up to five Bursaries will be awarded, each year and in perpetuity.
Said Mr Lim: “SIT’s cause to maximise the potential of its students to become thinking tinkerers, lifelong learners and catalysts for transformation who will care for the community is a compelling one. I hope the Bond Capital Bursary will help ensure that these students will be able to make full use of all their learning opportunities at SIT, without being hindered by financial hardship and worries. Through their SIT education, I hope the bursary recipients will be enabled to create a better tomorrow, not just for themselves but also for their families and the community.”
Said Prof Chua Kee Chaing, President, SIT, “We are very thankful for Mr Lim’s generous gift to nurture our students. The endowed Bond Capital Bursary, which aims to support the recipients over the entire course of their studies, will be especially impactful for our undergraduate students, many of whom come from less privileged backgrounds and are the first in their families to attend university.”
