NTU students can now have greater support in their academic, welfare, and career needs following a $1.75 million gift from leading life insurer AIA Singapore.
The gift will go to the funding of bursaries, scholarships and student activities. Together with applicable government matching funds, it will drive education, research and innovation at NTU and provide diverse academic opportunities for the University to nurture future generations of leaders.
In recognition of AIA Singapore’s gift, the Canopy Stage at NTU’s North Spine has been renamed The AIA Canopy, reflecting both NTU’s and AIA Singapore’s dedication in encouraging active and healthy lifestyles among students while celebrating moments of joy with their loved ones and the NTU community.
The popular communal space at NTU’s North Spine plays host to various events throughout the school year, such as freshman orientation activities, performances, pop-up stores for fund-raising, student-led initiatives, and many more.
To mark the occasion, a day-long festival was held at the canopy, comprising various food booths for NTU staff and students to enjoy and a dance competition.
