Lee Foundation helps PhD student mould the future of the arts

Felicia Low is on a quest to make art a part of the community. The performance and installation artist, who was selected for the President’s Young Talent Show in 2009, is pursuing her doctorate in Cultural Studies in Asia at the National University of Singapore (NUS) on the Lee Kong Chian Graduate Scholarship.

She explains, “The mission is not so much to ‘change’ the community but I want art to take on a meaning that is more profound and connected to people and life. Without the Scholarship, I think the opportunity to do a PhD would have been out of reach for me.”

The Lee Kong Chian Graduate Scholarship was established with donations received from the Lee Foundation. It is the University’s most prestigious scholarship for graduate students.
