The Howe Yoon Chong PSA endowment fund was set up in 2008 to honour the late Mr Howe Yoon Chong. Mr Howe was a visionary Singaporean who made significant contributions to Singapore, including the building of Singapore’s first container terminal.
The former Cabinet Minister also held the position of Chairman of the then Port of Singapore Authority. Through his astute leadership, Mr Howe transformed the port and laid the foundation for PSA’s growth into a leading global port group. To honour him, PSA set up the endowment fund to award bond-free scholarships to Singapore citizens. The endowment is under the auspices of Trailblazer Foundation Ltd, a registered charity under the purview of the Commissioner of Charities of Singapore, and comprises contributions from PSA, Temasek Holdings and NSL Ltd (formerly NATSTEEL LTD).
The Howe Yoon Chong PSA Scholarships aim to provide financial assistance to Singaporean students from lower income families, especially those who have made a difference to their community or society.
