The School of Finance and Applied Economics (SFAE) pioneer class set up a scholarship fund this year to enable needy and deserving students join the school and undertake courses that they desire. The fund is off to a successful start, with a value of US$25,000 at the moment and still growing!

The motivation of setting up the fund stems from having been in same class with I&M scholars who were able to excel and achieve their dreams through the scholarship. Given the meaningful contribution and positive impact that these students had, the Class of 2014 thought it worthwhile to start a fund that will give an opportunity to a needy student to study a BBS degree course of their choice.

The idea is to have the fund grow through the support of SFAE alumni, their families, friends and networks. The mission is to have the fund grow to an endowment fund, with a growing principal amount. Thus far, a committee of SFAE alumni has set up the primary operating structures of the fund, and intend to offer 1 full scholarship for the next intake.

SFAE alumni would thus like to call upon the companies that have partnered with us in any way, as well as other corporates that would like to support this initiative. We would also like to call upon individuals and other well-wishers to contribute to the fund to see it through its mission.
