Toa Payoh Seu Teck Sean Tong runs several key charity programs.  One of which is the Bursary program which was incepted in 2019.  Over the years, working directly with schools, we have been disbursing bursaries annually to Primary and Secondary school students.  

In 2023, we have expanded our bursary program to include students from post-secondary education institutions (PSEI) such as ITE, Junior Colleges and Polytechnics.  In 2024, we have further expanded our bursary program to include undergraduate degrees from local based universities.
