Alumna gives presentation at Singapore scholarship fair

Ivy Chia speaks at Singapore event in July.

A representative from the Gates Cambridge Alumni Association gave a presentation to around 200 prospective students at a scholarship fair in Singapore earlier this month.

Ivy Chia [2004], Director of Professional Development at Gates Cambridge Alumni Association, spoke at the largest ever Scholarship & Top University Fair on 17 July. The fair has been held annually since 2009 and gives the different Singapore Ministries, company scholarship bodies, and universities a platform to attract potential scholarship students.

Ivy took part in a seminar for British Council on ‘Study in UK’. She says: “The talk went very well and there was probably about 200 attendees.”

Around 2,000 students came to the fair, which was organised by the British Council, Singapore Press Holdings and United States Education Centre. Some 41 universities, 18 scholarship boards and five student-services organisations took part.
