TRC Bursary Awards & Excellence Awards
Tamils Representative Council (TRC) is an organization, dedicated to ensuring every Tamil child born in Singapore is not deprived of education merely because of financial difficulties. Educating our young to open them to new opportunities is a communal duty each of us carries.

Since 2000, TRC has been presenting bursaries to Indian students from needy families. Since 2002, TRC together with SINDA and Singapore Indian Education Trust has been presenting these bursaries as part of the Indian Community Bursary Awards to needy students from Indian families. The 3 main organizations have come together to ensure that our lesser-privileged students are not lacking in motivation and financial support in their efforts to educate themselves and be a better citizen and son/daughter to their Parents. Further, such cooperation will ensure that more students benefit from the better management of our limited resources. The awards range from $100 - $300. To date more than 1,500 students have benefited from this, receiving about $120,000 in total.

For the Year 2013, TRC will be presenting another 150 students with bursaries to assist them in their studies. Applications are closed and to date we have received more than 200 applications. The awards will be presented on 5 January 2013.

Such programmes need the full support of the Community and members of TRC. To sustain these events and extend the awards and amount to more students, TRC has to raise funds annually and through the monthly contributions from members and well-wishers. These contributions can be made via GIRO.

We appeal to you to come forward and play your part in our community enrichment projects. Please visit our website and join us as a GIRO contributor. AND also encourage your friends and relatives to do so to.

Thank You!
