As a publicly funded and globally acclaimed institution, NTU has an obligation to play an important role in helping to address national and regional priorities as well as global challenges. Therefore, every form of philanthropic support empowers the University mission and paves the way for new excellence and opportunities for our students and researchers across every school, programme and facility.
The vision of the University Advancement Office (UAO) is to be a high-performing, unified and professional institutional advancement team that supports NTU’s mission and goals as embedded in the NTU 2025 strategic plan.
UAO has a mission to foster and strengthen the University’s relationships with all its alumni and other potential supporters, through clearly articulated value propositions in order to fully realise their potential support for NTU through financial gifts and volunteer activities.
A world-class university
Ranked 13th in the world in the 2021 Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Rankings, NTU has also been ranked the world’s best young university since 2014 in the QS Top 50 under 50. Your gift enables NTU to continue its pursuit for excellence in pedagogy and research, establishing itself as a "great global university founded on science and technology".
Attract global top talents for life-changing discoveries
NTU aims to attract and retain the best talents to sustain its rise as a leading research university. Your gift will help our academics as they work to transform their research into potentially life-changing discoveries and inventions that address Singapore’s national priorities and some of humanity’s grand challenges.
A well-rounded education for every student
Many students in NTU require financial aid. Often, these students work part-time to make ends meet or forgo student activities. Your gift goes towards awarding bursaries and scholarships to the most deserving students. It also enriches the student experience through innovative programmes and meaningful student activities conducted locally and globally.
Close collaboration with academia and industry
Some of NTU’s key partners in academia and research include Imperial College London, Technical University of Munich, and the University of California, Berkeley. In recent years, NTU has struck a record number of tie-ups with big players such as BMW Group, Rolls-Royce, Delta Electronics, ST Engineering, SMRT and SingTel. Your gift ensures that NTU has the resources to form more major industry partnerships with leading global companies, deepening industry engagement with them and producing a new generation of talent for industries.
