On 10 December 2020, a signing and cheque presentation ceremony was held at the SIT@Dover campus to establish the Masonic Charitable Fund Endowment Bursary at SIT. Dr Yeoh Sin Hock, Assistant District Grand Master, District Grand Lodge of the Eastern Archipelago, presented an endowed gift to Prof Tan Thiam Soon, President, SIT, on behalf of the Masonic Charitable Fund.
The gift also marks the first endowed gift the Masonic Charitable Fund has made to an Institute of Higher Learning. It will enable SIT to support three Singaporean undergraduates with the Bursary (valued at $5,000 each) from Academic Year 2021/22 onwards, annually and in perpetuity.
The Masonic Charitable Fund Endowment Bursary is one of the most inclusive bursaries, and it is applicable to financially disadvantaged students from all fields of study.
