Streaker keeps study grant
THE A*Star scholarship holder convicted earlier this year of strolling through Holland Village stark naked will get to keep her study grant. Ms Eng Kai Er, 24, will continue her studies at the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden, after the Agency for Science, Technology and Research let her off with a warning. 'We have reviewed her case with her, and have issued her a warning for her indiscretion,' it said. In January this year, Ms Eng and Swedish exchange student Jan Philip, 21, stripped and walked down Lorong Mambong on a bustling Saturday evening, startling onlookers. For their act, which they said was done 'for a thrill', they were each fined $2,000, the maximum sum for an obscene act. Ms Eng, a former competitive ice-skater who represented Singapore in regional competitions, is a 2007 A*Star National Science scholarship award winner. She is studying for a PhD in infection biology at Karolinska, a major European medical university. Following her conviction, A*Star said it was disappointed that one of its scholarship holders had been found guilty of an offence, and would review the matter before deciding on 'an appropriate course of action'. Mr Philip, who was on an exchange programme at the National University of Singapore, was last month expected to have completed his programme.
