NTU Singapore has raised S$1 million to support NTU students and university programmes through its We Belong campaign, as the OneNTU community came together to celebrate the impact of giving at its second NTU Giving Day.

NTU Giving Day is a full-day fundraiser dedicated to deepening the culture of philanthropy at NTU, with funds raised going towards financial aid for students and support important programmes for the University’s schools and colleges.

It caps off the University’s second We Belong campaign, its fundraising and volunteering initiative first launched during NTU’s 30th anniversary last year.

A new undergraduate scholarship for humanities and social sciences undergraduates was also announced at the launch of NTU Giving Day 2023.

The Mr & Mrs Goh Chan Boo Scholarship, named in honour of the parents of NTU Board Chair, Ms Goh Swee Chen, is established through a personal gift to NTU from Ms Goh.
