Mr S R Nathan, the former President of Singapore, was a man of the people. In his six decades of service to the nation, from medical social work to the country’s president, he kept his community consciousness intact. After his presidency, Mr Nathan established the S R Nathan Education Upliftment Fund with the Community Foundation of Singapore. The S$10 million endowment fund was set up to help financially disadvantaged students in Singapore achieve their full potential.

The Fund made a gift to NUS in support of the S R Nathan Music Scholarship which is a merit-based scholarship for Singaporean students from the wind, brass, percussion, composition or audio arts areas for the duration of their undergraduate programme.
