In 2018, the Volleyball Association of Singapore (VAS) set up the VAS-Lui Tiow Kar Volleyball Scholarship. The idea of this scholarship was first mooted in 2016 after the passing of the late Mr Lui Tiow Kar and is fully supported by both VAS and Mrs Lui Tiow Kar.
The VAS VISION2020 recognises the value of every fraction of the Volleyball Fraternity in advancing the priorities and the development of the sport. It is important to not only increase the number of players through awareness and education, but also to increase the level of basic skill sets taught to the players. VISION2020 is all about changing mental paradigms and creating strategies to better the potential of Volleyball.
This scholarship is the first of such in Singapore Volleyball. The driving force behind the Scholarship is the desire to motivate promising young Volleyball athletes to continue the persue of their volleyball dreams, and to support them financially in their pursuits.
The Scholarship aims to:
Motivate deserving sports talents to achieve their sporting goals; and
Support high-performing volleyball athletes to pursue excellence in volleyball.
The tenure of the scholarship is one year. The scholarship has 2 categories. The cash award for each category of scholarship is as follows:
