Faculty & Staff Giving

At Yale-NUS, many faculty and staff not only give of their time to the College, but are also committed to supporting it philanthropically.

Your gift through our annual Faculty & Staff Giving campaign at Yale-NUS directly impacts our community and your collective participation encourages additional support from students, alumni, parents, friends and organisations.

Faculty & Staff Giving Opportunities

Listed below are a few giving opportunities most frequently supported by faculty and staff. You may also choose from other priorities listed here.


Bernard Bate Prize

The Bernard Bate Prize was established in memory of Associate Professor Bernard Bate, a member of the inaugural faculty of Yale-NUS College. He was a linguistic and sociological anthropologist whose work involved the theory, ethnography and history of political oratory and rhetoric with a regional focus in the Tamil worlds of South Asia. In recognition of his service and devotion to Yale-NUS College, the Bernard Bate Prize was established with gifts from members of the Yale-NUS community to reflect his generosity and connection to the Yale-NUS family. The Prize will support a student who produces the best capstone project in Anthropology.


Yale-NUS College Financial Aid Fund

Gifts to the Financial Aid Fund will provide financial aid to deserving but financially needy students at the College.


Yale-NUS College Endowment

Yale-NUS College is the first college in Singapore to offer a liberal arts education. Gifts to this fund will be channelled towards the College’s endowment, where the principal sum is invested and the returns used to fund the College’s most immediate priorities.


Yale-NUS College International Opportunities Fund

The International Opportunities Fund helps financially needy students going on international opportunities, including spending a semester or summer in internationally renowned educational institutions as well as other meaningful international opportunities, such as language and cultural immersion programmes.
