AMP Education Bursary Disbursement Ceremony 2016
 

The AMP Education Bursary is one of the components of assistance under the Ready for School (RFS) Fund, 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 74 students during the AMP Education Bursary Disbursement Ceremony on 28 May 2016.

Gracing the event as Guest of Honour is Mdm Rahayu Mahzam, Member of Parliament for Jurong GRC. Out of a total $191,000 worth of AMP's education assistance this year, $58,000 was disbursed at the ceremony, with cash bursaries of $500 and $1,000 being presented to diploma students and undergraduates respectively. The remaining will be expended in the form of other socio-educational assistance and programmes throughout the year. A total of 735 students from low-income families will benefit from the assistance.

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. It is also hoped that the assistance will help defray some of their education expenses and lighten their family's financial load.

Our heartiest congratulations to all award recipients for the AMP Education Bursary 2016!
