Encouragement For 85 Student-Athletes
2021 Singapore Olympic Foundation-Peter Lim Scholarship Encouragement Awards
A total of 85 Sports School student-athletes were awarded the Encouragement Awards for the 2021 Singapore Olympic Foundation (SOF)-Peter Lim Scholarship.
In the best effort to continue its support for aspiring athletes during the ongoing pandemic, the SOF-Peter Lim Scholarship is disbursed as “Encouragement Awards” instead of Scholarship in 2021. The aim for the one year award remains the same – to support young high performing athletes under 18 years old to pursue their sporting dream, and to ensure no deserving sports talents who are committed to chase their sporting dream to be hampered by financial challenges.
Among 17 recipients of the High Performance U18 category, four of them are 2019 SEA Games medallists – Simon Lee Renjie (Fencing, silver medal), Xu Jingfeng (Ice Skating, gold medal), Goh Wen Zhe (Water Polo, bronze medal) and Michelle Tan Ting Yee (Water Polo, silver medal).
Second time award recipient of the High Performance category, Michelle Tan shared, “I feel honoured to be able to receive the Award as it helps to offset some of the training costs and support me in my sporting endeavours.”
Shooter Teo Jia En is just as grateful for the award which came as an encouragement for him in his sport pursuit. “I am very grateful for the Award. Even though many competitions are cancelled due to the pandemic, the SOF still supports young athletes like us who are training hard for our sport,” said the student-athlete in the Diploma in Business, a post-secondary programme offered in collaboration with Republic Polytechnic.
