CREATING MEANINGFUL IMPACT FOR FINANCIALLY NEEDY STUDENTS

During the 10th anniversary of the MWM Programme in 2014, the MWM Study Award was established to support financially needy students at SMU, to enable them to enjoy the holistic education that the University offers. To date, 6 recipients have benefitted from the generosity of our alumni and MWM community.

SMU’s key priority is to ensure that no deserving student, is deprived of our unique educational experience because of financial constraints. Our collective commitment to our students ensures that they have real opportunities to explore new pathways for development and to discover the full extent of their capabilities.

To commemorate this special occasion of MWM15, we hope to keep this tradition of paying it forward, impacting the lives of talented and driven students with a fundraising goal of $225,000 collectively from 15 batches of MWM graduates. Together with the current endowment, this will add 1 more award, making it 2 endowed study awards for needy undergraduates at a quantum of $8,800 each, a 60% increase in the value of the award, to ensure that students are adequately supported against the rising tuition fees.

"The SMU MWM Study Award has greatly motivated me to work harder in my student life! I would like to thank all the donors, the MWM Alumni Exco and the selection panelists for making this award possible. I will continue to work hard and I hope that I will be able to make similar contributions in the future."
