Temasek Cares Education Bursary Programme for Eurasian Students
Helping Eurasian students from low-income families to succeed in school
Partner: Eurasian Association

The Temasek Cares Education Bursary provides financial support to Eurasian students from lower-income families that do not qualify for existing financial assistance schemes offered by the Eurasian Association or the government.

In FY 2014 -2015, 26 students from Primary to Junior College levels were awarded the bursaries. The bursaries helped the students to pay for their educational costs including school fees, purchase of uniforms as well as textbooks. Some of the beneficiaries shared that receiving the bursaries motivated them to study even harder to improve their grades, to make their parents proud, and to have the satisfaction of achieving their goals.

Temasek Cares - Education Bursary Programmes for Eurasian students
Helping Eurasian primary school students from financially-challenged families to succeed in school
Partner: Eurasian Association

The Education Bursary Programme for Eurasian Students helps primary school students from lower-income families pay for school-related expenses. The programme targets Eurasian families who are financially challenged and may not qualify for existing financial assistance schemes offered by the Eurasian Association or the government.

The programme was first put in place in 2011 and 57 students have received help with the cost of school fees, books, transportation to and from school, and meals during recess. Parents of the beneficiaries shared that this bursary helped to alleviate their financial burden, giving them peace of mind that their child’s education, a top priority, was taken care of.

Several beneficiaries also shared that the bursary motivated them to study harder – to improve their grades, make their parents proud, and to have the satisfaction of achieving their goals.

The bursary programme, extended for another two years, expects to benefit another 56 families.
