A sum of $4 million has been donated to Nanyang Technological University with the aim of attracting research scientists.
The funds, which were provided by businessman Senapathy Gopalakrishnan, would be used in part to sponsor the Gopalakrishnan-NTU Presidential Postdoctoral Fellowship.
Another portion of the funds will be set aside to enable overseas students from selected universities to enter a PhD-level collaboration with NTU.
The donation was recently formalised at a signing ceremony, and was witnessed by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Nanyang Technological University president Subra Suresh said that the first two recipients of the fellowships will be announced soon.
