To support students with financial needs, MUFG Investor Services generously donated four scholarships to support undergraduate students at Nanyang Business School (NBS).
A gift of $48,000 to NBS established the MUFG Investor Services Scholarship, providing financial assistance to undergraduate business students in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Open to undergraduates pursuing a Banking & Finance specialisation, four students were selected to receive a scholarship of $12,000 each towards their tuition and living expenses.
A representative from MUFG Investor Services shares: “MUFG Investor Services strongly believes that knowledge is power, and education should not be a privilege limited to the brightest students from comfortable backgrounds, but should be available to all individuals from all walks of life. As such, we have decided to work with Nanyang Technological University and other local educational institution on setting up education bursaries and scholarships, contributing to grooming the future of our community, our region and beyond.”
The student recipients had the opportunity to meet with the team at MUFG Investor Services during an engaging virtual meet-and-greet session held on 19 July 2021.
The four student recipients of the MUFG Investor Services Scholarship share:
Penultimate year Banking & Finance student Jamaine Lee shares: “I am extremely thankful for receiving this award and truly appreciate MUFG’s kind generosity. I will definitely put this fund to good use and take on professional courses to upskill and enhance myself. I believe that this will definitely benefit my family and myself in the future. Thank you so much for this award. It truly means a lot to me and I hope to be able to pay it forward one day!”
Year 2 Banking & Finance student Goh Teng Yuan shares: “I'm thankful for the scholarship that will help with many things, including my tuition fees and personal expenditure for my school life next year. I will also contribute a portion back to the family funds for our daily lives. Thank you to MUFG Investor Services, as all of these would not be possible without the scholarship.”
Final year NBS student Siva So Aridass shares: “This scholarship will help me in a lot of ways and I am greatly appreciative of that. This fund would help me offset my school fees as well as the expenses incurred in school such as getting the necessary study materials for the courses. My life at NTU has been an eye-opening event where I get exposed to higher learning and helps me to open my mind to greater possibilities. Thank you to MUFG for giving me this scholarship as this is bringing me one step closer to my aspirations.”
Final year NBS student Joelle Tay joins in expressing her gratitude: “Thank you to MUFG Investor Services for your generosity and support. You have inspired me to help others and give back to the community. I hope one day I will be able to help students achieve their goals just as you have helped me.”
