The Nanyang Technological University has received a $4 million donation from the estate of the late Irene Tan Liang Kheng.
The gift will fund scholarships in five master’s programmes: the Master of Arts (Applied Psychology), Master of Arts (Counselling and Guidance), Master of Arts in Humanities Education, Master of Arts (Leadership and Educational Change) and Master of Education (Early Childhood) programmes.
Up to eight scholarships will be given out annually, each worth $10,000 to $20,000.
In addition, several grants worth a total of $290,000 over two years will go towards supporting teachers in training.
This is the second gift from the Estate to NTU, with the first being an $11 million donation to the university’s Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine in August. The newly set-up Irene Tan Liang Kheng Scholarship will be awarded to academically bright but needy Singaporean students for the full five years of the LKCMedicine MBBS programme.
