The Ready for School (RFS) Fund was launched in 2002 to assist students from less privileged families in their educational pursuit. Assistance under the fund comprises the AMP Education Bursary, AMP-2ⁿᵈ Chance STEM Study Award, RFS Youth Enrichment Series, and other socio-educational assistance.
The AMP Education Bursary offers monetary assistance to diploma and degree students from less privileged families of all races. Apart from students from local polytechnics and universities, the bursary also benefits full-time and part-time undergraduates from recognised private education institutions in Singapore.
The bursary seeks to recognise the recipients’ academic achievements, alleviate their financial load and be a source of motivation for them to strive harder in their higher education. It also hopes to see students through their pursuit of higher levels of education and in future, give back to those in need in the community.
The AMP Education Bursary assists tertiary students who meet the following eligibility criteria:
1. Full-time Diploma
2. Full-time Bachelor's Degree
3. Part-time Bachelor's Degree
Each successful applicant will receive financial assistance of $1,000 (for Degree students) or $500 (for Diploma students).
