    Three outstanding students from the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) received the inaugural Keppel Care Foundation Scholarships that were presented at the ITE Student Achievers' Awards presentation ceremony on 14 May 2019.

    Keppel believes that inclusive, quality education can lift communities out of poverty by enabling children and youth to create brighter futures for themselves and their families.

    As part of Keppel's celebration of its 50th anniversary in 2018, Keppel Care Foundation made a $10 million donation to the ITE Education Fund to set up the Keppel Care Foundation Scholarship and Keppel Merit Awards, which provide financial support for deserving students from low-income families.

    "I feel very honoured to be awarded this scholarship. It is a recognition of my hard work. Coming from a humble family background, the scholarship will also enable me to have bigger dreams, and encourages me to strive to continue to do well," shared Toh Yi Jing, one of the Keppel Care Foundation scholarship recipients pursuing Higher Nitec in Cyber & Network Security.
