At Ngee Ann Polytechnic, we believe that no student should be denied an education simply because of his/her financial constraints. In addition, we give due recognition and encouragement to talented students to enable them to achieve greater heights. All this is possible through the support from our philanthropic partners as well as our own fundraising initiatives.
The Ngee Ann Kongsi, a philanthropic foundation, contributed $8.71 million to Ngee Ann Polytechnic in September 2016. The Kongsi's contribution will be used to support local and overseas student development programmes, and nurture student entrepreneurship.
We would also like to thank the following individuals and organisations for their donations of bursaries, scholarships and student aid grants.
