Seven awarded bursaries by the NUS Economics Alumni (2018)

This academic year, the NUS Economics Alumni awarded its first bursary recipients under the newly created Economics Alumni Endowed Bursary. The Endowed Bursary was made possible by over $250,000 in donations from alumni, faculty and friends, together with matching grants from government. Along with funds from the existing (non-endowed) bursary, we have been able to give out seven awards worth $3,000 each this year.

This also marks the first year In which we are giving out bursaries named according to the wishes of donors who have contributed $25,000 and above.

The following students have been awarded bursaries by the Bursary Committee.
