Temasek Cares - Education Bursary Programme
Supporting students from lower-income families with education-related expenses
Partner: Spectra Secondary School
The education bursary programme provides financial support to students from financially-needy families to help them meet school-related expenses. The school estimates that nearly 50% of students need help with the cost of textbooks, uniforms, meals, transport to and from school, and course materials. The bursaries are given out in the form of vouchers, top-up cards, materials purchased by the school or as reimbursement against receipts for approved items.
The programme complements other financial assistance schemes by the government, grassroots organisations and voluntary welfare organisations. The 3-year programme expects to benefit 300 students.
