To spur talented Singaporean students interest for careers in science, A*STAR supports a science education program that encompasses public schools as well as college and university degree studies. Before he became A*STAR Chairman last year, Mr. Lim was Permanent Secretary in the Singapore Ministry of Education.

In his Fulbright Academy lecture, Mr. Lim will review the educational system that has resulted in Singapore fourth and eighth grade students ranking #1 in science and math. He also will describe the A*STAR scholarship programs that today support the Ph.D. degree educations of over 700 young Singaporeans. Many of these students, we hope, will be the future leaders of science and technology in Singapore, he noted.

Said Mr. Eric Howard, Executive Director of the Fulbright Academy of Science & Technology, "A*STAR is a valuable strategic partner to us in reaching out to the international scientific community. We are a network of Fulbright scholars and alumni, so our ideals are closely aligned in our desire to promote advancement through dialogues in science and technology. Mr Lim's talk at the Academy's Annual Conference will address many relevant issues in the areas of science and math education and we are confident that our delegates will greatly benefit from the session.

The Fulbright Academy is partnering A*STAR to launch its inaugural Asian conference in October focusing on the future of cities. A growing portion of humanity is moving to cities, so this conference will examine the efforts of Singapore and other cities to build safe, conducive and productive urban areas.

At the meeting, Fulbright scholars, key leaders and innovative researchers from around the world will exchange ideas on scientific and technological solutions for sustainable cities of the future.

At this years AAAS conference, in support of nurturing young aspiring talent, A*STAR will sponsor the competition that recognizes college a
