"Seek knowledge from the Cradle to the Grave"
The Qur'an and the traditions of Prophet Muhammad are filled with references to learning, education, observation, and the use of reason. This is not limited to religious education alone, but also secular knowledge of Dunya.
Unfortunately, costs of education, particularly at tertiary levels, have skyrocketed in the past decade. Since 2010, tuition fees at local universities have gone up every year for most courses, mainly due to rising operating costs.
To alleviate this burden, Alwehdah created the Alwehdah Bursary to extend financial assistance to financially-needy Singaporean students of Arab descent pursuing tertiary education in our local Universities and Polytechnics. Since the fund's inception in 2014, we have disbursed more than 140 awards worth SGD$226,000 in total.
