The annual UOB Kay Hian Scholarship presentation ceremony took place on 13th Nov 2014. Fifteen excited scholars made their way to UOB Kay Hian’s office at Anthony Road.
We were warmly received by Mr Kok Heng Loong, Executive Director of UOB Kay Hian
Private Limited, and his colleagues. Other attendees of the ceremony included Ms
Georgina Phua, BIMC Cluster Director, and lecturers from the Banking and Finance
course management team.
In his opening address, Mr Kok praised the scholars on their ensuing efforts to strike a
balance between studies and non-academic activities. Mr Kok also expressed his pleasure
in providing opportunities for students and commended the lecturers for their dedication.
Ms Georgina Phua thanked Mr Kok and his team for their steadfast support as well as helping
students to become inspired learners who care for the community and serve with mastery.
During the informal tea session, we mingled with staff from various departments of UOB Kay
Hian. The tea session enriched our appreciation of the industry and job functions as we learnt
more about the industry’s dynamics, practices and career opportunities.
Thank you UOB Kay Hian for the privilege and kind hospitality!
