About the Endowment Fund
The Henry David Hochstadt Early Childhood Education (HDHECE) Endowment Fund is a gift from Mr Herman Hochstadt, the eldest son of Mr Henry David Hochstadt and a Pro-Chancellor of the Nanyang Technological University. The fund resides with the Early Childhood and Special Needs Education Academic Group (ECSE AG) at the National Institute of Education (NIE), Nanyang Technological University. It has been set up to support development and research for the enhancement and sustainability of quality practices for early childhood education, especially within the Singapore context.
Mr Hochstadt's endowment gift was for $500,000. With a dollar-for-dollar matching from the government, the fund amounts to one million dollars, and this generates interest on an annual basis which NIE's ECSE AG taps on for the fund's various projects and initiatives.
