In the second half of our 2017 Tête-à-tête @ TCTF series on 9 November 2017, current scholarship and bursary award recipients from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, Nanyang Technological University, Ngee Ann Polytechnic, Republic Polytechnic and YALE-NUS, gathered to learn about the philanthropic legacy of Tan Sri Tan Chin Tuan. Hosted by our TCTF Chairman Dr Tan Kheng Lian, Council Member, Professor Cham Tao Soon, and CEO Ms Yap Su-Yin, the tea was also attended by distinguished school representatives and special guests, like Dr Tan Lai Yong from NUS who inspired many with his motivating stories of his unconventional life choices.

Scholars were given the opportunity not only to converge and form bonds with each other, they were also treated to a rare opportunity to tour around the Tan Chin Tuan Mansion, where its’ heritage-rich doors only open to invited members of the public. Congratulations to all scholars once again, and directing our appreciation to all distinguished guests who took time off to grace this event.
