Over the years, the University has benefited from the generosity of various donors who made it possible for recognition to be given to outstanding and deserving students through the award of various medals and prizes. Most university-level awards are offered on open competition basis.

Lee Kuan Yew Gold Medal

The Chinese Newspapers Division of Singapore Press Holdings and Sony Systems Design International Pte Ltd jointly produced a CD-ROM on the then Senior Minister, Mr Lee Kuan Yew in 1995. With the consent of Mr Lee, the net proceeds from the sale of 100 gold-plated CD-ROM and 20,000 copies of the CD-ROM together, with a transit link farecard, were donated to the Universities Endowment Fund in 1996 for the purpose of instituting awards of the Lee Kuan Yew Gold Medals.
