SINGAPORE OLYMPIC FOUNDATION (SOF)-PETER LIM SCHOLARSHIP
In June 2010, the Singapore Olympic Foundation (SOF) set up the SOF-Peter Lim Scholarship with a S$10-million donation from philanthropist and sports enthusiast, Mr Peter Lim. The gift remains the single largest donation in Singapore from an individual towards sports development.  The driving force behind the Scholarship is the desire to ensure that no promising young athlete, committed to chasing his sporting dreams, should be hampered by financial considerations.

The scholarship is awarded only to Singapore citizens who are either:
  • financially-deserving and promising athletes from primary, secondary/junior college and tertiary educational institutions; or
  • talented athletes under 18 years old who have represented Singapore in overseas competitions.
