At Sunjem Private School, the belief is that children should not be denied their fundamental right to education as a result of their parents inability to pay for their education. Consequently, the School set up a Scholarship Scheme to take care of the less privileged children. This scheme has been in operation since 2003. In addition, the School awards tuition free
scholarship to the best overall student every term. This is to encourage excellence and healthy academic competition amongst the students
This fund is meant to support three main categories of the scholarship scheme, viz;
The Needy. Those who are desirous of being in school or are in school but cannot afford the cost.
Academic Excellence. Recognition of academic achievement and encouragement of academic competition amongst the students.
Special Skills. An award or prize money to best student in specific areas of study, e.g. Sciences, Home economics, Fine Art, Religious studies, etc.
SCOPE OF THE SCHEME
The scholarship program is designed to cover two broad areas of award – Direct and Indirect.
