VERITAS Fund for Excellence in Design Education (VFE)

The VERITAS Fund for Excellence in Design Education (VFE) was founded in 2004 to further our core values of constant innovation, a commitment to design excellence and social responsibility towards the built environment. It is our hope that the Fund would encourage more design students and teachers to excel in various design fields and eventually contribute towards nation-building as architects, designers and educators.

The Fund will be channelled to assist students and teachers in local institutions through scholarships, awards, research grants, study stipends, community projects, study trips, design competitions, student seminars, student publications, etc. that will promote a culture of excellence and generally enhance public awareness and recognition of design.

Funding
The VERITAS Design Group has committed to set aside each year a percentage of our annual profit towards the Fund which is supplemented by contributions from some of VERITAS’ Clients and business associates.
