Friday, 18 February 2011
Adam Scott, the renowned international golfer, who launched The Adam Scott Foundation Asia (ASFA) in September 2008, will be visiting the National Institute of Education (NIE), Singapore on 18 February 2011, from 10.00am to 11.30am.
Adam Scott has close links to the NTU’s Bachelor of Science in Sport Science and Management (SSM) degree progamme conducted by NIE, Singapore. Through his foundation, four scholarships were offered to SSM students over the last two years. The first of its kind to be offered by a publicly-funded university in Singapore, the four-year, direct honours programme aims to produce professionals with relevant knowledge and pertinent skills for engagement in the sports industry. It is the only degree programme in a publicly-funded university in Singapore that offers both academic and professional path-ways to sport related careers. Adam Scott’s visit here in Singapore is to better understand the degree programme and to talk to students about his work in the foundation as well as his own sports experience.
The Adam Scott Foundation Asia was established to create a long term sustainable organization that will support and offer opportunities to young people in Singapore and around Asia. Based in Singapore, it will be an extension of his Australian Foundation which was founded in 2005.
The Adam Scott Foundation Asia aims to support disadvantaged and underprivileged youth by providing opportunities to fulfill potential or overcome difficulties throughout life’s journey. The Foundation will also provide grants and undertake special projects in support of strong charitable organizations to promote health, lifestyle and education while drawing on the community philanthropic spirit.
The fact sheet for ASFA, SSM, programme and profile of the four ASFA scholars are enclosed in Annexe A.
