The South West Community Development Council (CDC) launched its South West ComCare Bursary which is targeted at polytechnic students from low-income families to help them defray part of their schooling expenses. It also contains a community service component to encourage the students to pay it forward through involvement in grassroots projects that will benefit the community.
With the component of community service, the CDC hopes that this could spark an interest in volunteerism among the bursary recipients, encourage them to take ownership of the community they live in and promote greater awareness among them that they too can contribute to the community.
We are pleased to share that the South West ComCare Bursary is now opened for Jurong Central residents’ application at Jurong Green CC. Please refer to attached for the poster and application form.
The deadline for application is being extended till 31 Dec 2013.
