 Giving to a Cause

"Education is an investment, with lifelong benefits
It opens doors to the world of knowledge, to opportunities unlimited
It brings hope, reduces inequalities, bridges divides;
No one who wants an education should be deprived of it
because of inability to meet the financial cost"

- Professor Cheong Hee Kiat,
Singapore University of Social Sciences


What Your Gift Can Do​

SIM University Education Fund was established since 2006 by the former SIM University. Donations made to the SIM University Education Fund will be used for the purpose of building up the capability of the University including the support of scholarly initiatives.
