SEP Award for the Community Spirited

This award was created through a generous donation from Mr Dilhan Pillay Sandrasegara, the CEO of Temasek International.


Through this gift, Mr Sandrasegara would like to encourage NUS students to participate in the Student Exchange Programme (SEP) which he believes will provide invaluable learning opportunities and insightful international experience. At the same time, he would like recipients of the awards to give back to the community through social service. The SEP Award for the Community Spirited is created for students who have demonstrated a desire to give back to the society through consistent and active community involvement.
