The AMP Education Bursary is under AMP's Ready for School Fund or RFS, which has rendered assistance to disadvantaged students across all educational levels since 2002. Since the bursary was enhanced in 2013 to include those from private education institutions, almost 40% of its recipients comprise undergraduates from these institutions.
As part of AMP's aims to foster a culture of lifelong learning on top of assisting less privileged tertiary students in their pursuit of higher education, AMP presented its Education Bursary Award to a total of 70 students during the AMP Education Bursary Disbursement Ceremony on 30 May 2015.
Gracing the event as Guest of Honour was Associate Professor Muhd Faishal Ibrahim, Parliamentary Secretary for Health and Transport. In his opening address to the recipients and their accompanying guests, Prof Faishal reminded the students that learning is a lifelong journey and skills mastery is key to building a better future. He also encouraged them to continue moving forward regardless of where they are in their educational journey and to remember those who have contributed to their success.
A total of $55,000 was distributed at the ceremony, with cash bursaries of $500 and $1,000 being presented to diploma students and undergraduates respectively.
AMP hopes that by helping these students access opportunities in institutes of higher learning, they will excel in their academic endeavours, continue to upgrade their skills in their areas of interest and in turn, give back to those who are in need.
Our heartiest congratulations to all award recipients for the AMP Education Bursary 2015!
