TEKPS has been offered since 2011, and seeks to encourage Singapore Citizens and PRs to pursue their Master’s or PhD degrees in fields relating to the Humanities.

TEKPS was set up in commemoration of the late Mr. Tan Ean Kiam, father of the late Mr. Tan Tock San, founding chairman of the Tan Kah Kee Foundation. Mr. Tan Ean Kiam (1881-1943) was a famous banker and community leader in pre-war Singapore. He was a director of the Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce as well as president of many established clan associations. In 1937, Tan Ean Kiam, together with five others of his contemporaries, namely Lee Kong Chian, Lee Chin Tian, Lee Choon Seng, Chew Hean Swee and Yeo Kiat Tiow, pooled their resources to acquire the villa that Dr. Sun Yat Sen stayed in while he was in Singapore. In 1938, Tan Ean Kiam became a committee member of the Nanyang Federation of China (China scholarships) Relief Fund (NFCRF). Tan Ean Kiam served on the boards of numerous Chinese schools as chairperson and director. He donated generously to education. The newly established TEKPS is funded by the Tan Ean Kiam Foundation.

Besides the annual TKKPS and TEKPS, the Tan Kah Kee Foundation offers another postgraduate scholarship – namely, the Li Siong Tay Postgraduate Scholarship (LSTPS). LSTPS will be offered from 2018 onwards, and seeks to encourage Singapore Citizens and PRs to pursue their Master’s or PhD degrees in fields relating to the Education and Arts.
