Support Schemes

In addition to the support that High Performance provides to our sailors to achieve their sporting goals, there are a variety of support schemes such as awards, scholarships and grants from different government bodies that athletes can directly apply for themselves. 

You may write in directly to the various supporting organisations for any clarifications on the schemes or drop us an email at

singapore olympic foundation peter lim scholarship

In June 2010, the Singapore Olympic Foundation (SOF) set up the SOF-Peter Lim Scholarship with a S$10-million donation from philanthropist and sports enthusiast, Mr Peter Lim. The gift remains the single largest donation in Singapore from an individual towards sports development.


The driving force behind the Scholarship is the desire to ensure that no promising young athlete, committed to chasing his sporting dreams, should be hampered by financial considerations.


The Scholarship aims to:

– Help young deserving sports talents from humble backgrounds to achieve their sporting goals; and

– Support under-18, high-performing athletes to pursue sporting excellence in their chosen fields.
