CrimsonLogic partners five polytechnics in Singapore to make ten bursaries available annually for students from low income families

CrimsonLogic has launched the CrimsonLogic Bursary, a programme for students from low income families studying in Singapore Polytechnics, the provider of eGovernment solutions and services headquartered in Singapore announced today.

The bursaries are for IT students at Nanyang Polytechnic, Ngee Ann Polytechnic, Republic Polytechnic, Singapore Polytechnic and Temasek Polytechnic.

There will be two bursaries valued at S$5,000 ($2,500 for each bursary) for each of the five Polytechnics, according to a spokesperson of CrimsonLogic.

"As we celebrate our 25th anniversary this year, we wanted to share some of our achievements with the country that has contributed to our success; and there is no better way to do so than to help the future generation, especially the polytechnic students that will help Singapore continue its growth as an international hub of talent and investment," said Saw Ken Wye, Chief Executive Officer, CrimsonLogic.  "This bursary programme will help subsidise the full-year course fee for selected students and they also have the option to do internships with us."

The students need to apply for the bursary at the beginning of each new academic year and the candidates will be screened and nominated by the respective Polytechnics, the company said in a statement.

"This bursary initiative for the needy students of the IT-related courses will be extremely helpful to allow the needy students to be able to focus better in their IT pursuits instead of having to work part-time," said Angela Wee Li Kwang Director of Ngee Ann Polytechnic's School of InfoComm Technology.
