MIT Club of Singapore Gala Dinner 2017

Description

The MIT Club of Singapore Scholarship Fund

The inaugural MIT Club of Singapore Gala Dinner was held in March 2012 for the purpose of setting up a MIT Club of Singapore Scholarship Fund. Since then, the Club has successfully raised over S$200,000 and have set up the infrastructure to administer the funds raised. We have also obtained an IPC status for the Fund, providing donors with a tax relief of 250% on the amount donated.

The MIT Club of Singapore Scholarship Fund was set up with dual purposes. The first is to fund an endowment at MIT, which will provide a Singapore-based student with a stipend which will complement but not replace the other bursaries and grants that he or she may be awarded by the Institute. The second is to fund academic prizes for the best students from the local Universities pursuing degrees in Science (including Economics) and Engineering. We have since allocated funds raised during the 2012 & 2014 Gala Dinner for its intended purposes.

MIT Club of Singapore Gala Dinner 2017

We have secured the attendance of our Patron, President Tony Tan Keng Yam, and other distinguished guests for the 2017 Gala Dinner. We would like to encourage you to make the time to attend the dinner and contribute towards helping to make this effort a success.

This Gala Dinner aims to raise more money for the Scholarship Fund in order to provide the winner of the award a larger annual stipend to subsidize the student’s cost of living in Cambridge Massachusetts.
