For the first time ever, MTFA hosted its Scholarship Awards at an external venue! About 300 guests were invited on 12 October 2019, Saturday to The Iris @ City Plaza for the ceremony.
The event was graced by Guest-of-Honor, Dr Maliki Osman, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Defence and Ministry of Foreign Affairs and presented to 12 of our MTFA Founder’s & Ihsan Scholarship Award recipients, worth a total of $66,000.
2019’s edition saw the inaugural presentation of the Ihsan Scholarship, a top-tier award for outstanding students who have demonstrated academic excellence and resilience in spite of personal difficulties. This award, valued at up to $40,000, will provide funding for up to 5 years of study, with provision for overseas internships and extracurricular modules.
Receiving this prestigious award this year is Ahmad Musthofa Bin Murdifi, a third year student from YALE-NUS College, who is pursuing a double degree in Law and Liberal Arts.
