$3m bond-free scholarship for needy SMU students

Needy students at SMU who are active in community outreach and show a strong academic track record can now tap a new $3 million scholarship. The JLFO-LHF Scholarship, set up by the Lim Hoon Foundation (LHF), a private charitable trust of the JL Family Office (JLFO), will help cover recipients' annual tuition fees and study-related expenses. The cheque was presented to SMU President Professor Lily Kong at an event at SMU on Wednesday. Prof Kong noted that, beyond offering their financial support in the form of scholarships, JLFO and LHF Chairman Mr John Lim and Group Chief Executive of JLFO and Director of LHF Mr Andy Lim have also given much of their time and attention to mentor the scholars and nurture future leaders. "Their continuing efforts to engage the scholars and alumni through internships, scholars' network, entrepreneurship fund, company activities and community outreach programmes exemplify their desire to impart values and change lives."
