Education & Scholarships

ARA firmly believes in the social multiplier effect, sustainability of education and the positive impact of having a solid education foundation. We work with various institutions to provide sustainable financial aids to under-privileged students.

ARA-Lim Hoon Foundation Scholarships

ARA, together with Lim Hoon Foundation, a private charitable trust created in August 2008 and named in honor of Mr John Lim’s late father, has collectively made an endowed contribution of $4 million with one-to-one matching from the Ministry of Education's Matching Grant to establish the ARA Asset Management Scholarship and Lim Hoon Foundation ("LHF") Scholarship (ARA-LHF Scholarship) with Singapore Management University to fund 12 non-bonded ARA and LHF Scholarships yearly in perpetuity. Since its inception in 2009, we have awarded 36 scholarships.

The ARA-LHF Scholarship aims to motivate the underprivileged students to achieve greater heights by providing them with financial aid. The Scholarship is available to all full-time undergraduate students from the Lee Kong Chian School of Business, the School of Accountancy, or the School of Economics. The scholars are also offered internship opportunities with ARA.
