Transforming Lives through Opportunity

Education is a powerful tool for upward social mobility. One of NUS’ top priorities has always been to ensure that all students, regardless of socioeconomic status, have access to higher education.

Beyond raising funds for bursaries and scholarships, NUS seeks to gain strong support for community outreach programmes and areas where education and research have an impact on the community and public service.
