HCJC Alumni Bursary awards 2020
On 8 July 2020, HCJC Alumni President, Mr Ronald Tay, was joined by members of the HCJCA Student Education Fund Committee (SEF), Mr William Ng, Dr Lin Wei Liang and Ms Sanny Ong, to present bursaries to students in Hwa Chong Institution. This year, 75 students received the Hwa Chong Junior College Alumni Bursary, ranging from $800 to $1200. A total of $74,000 was disbursed.
Despite new social distancing regulations, it was a friendly occasion with alumni sharing encouragement and engaging in chit-chats with students over a simple tea reception. It was heartening to see cheerful smiles of young students, and to know that the school and Alumni's student support initiatives would provide them with some assistance and encouragement in this challenging year.
The HCJCA Student Education Fund (SEF) was set up earlier this year, to continue our support for Bursary and various Book Prizes for JC1 and JC2 students of Hwa Chong Institution. We are currently accepting donations for the Student Education Fund from 1 July - 31 August 2020, in conjunction with celebrations of Hwa Chong JC's 46th anniversary. RSVP to the 46th Alumni College Day Virtual Celebrations on 15 August 2020 here, or make donations to the Student Education Fund! https://www.hwachongjcalumni.org.sg/46
"The Alumni has been providing bursaries for students over the last two decades and many have benefited from the alumni's generous donations. We are grateful to the generosity of our many alumni; it is through your giving that our juniors will have the opportunities to dream big dreams and fulfil their fullest potential."
- Mr Teh Chee Siong (Principal Consultant/Faculty, Hwa Chong Institution)
