Grants

The SUSS Service-Learning Fund seeks to empower and inspire SUSS students to continue to create sustainable endeavours for the community. The SUSS S-L Fund Committee represents the student body to collectively raise and disburse funds for SUSS students' community efforts. Supported by BinjaiTree Foundation, the grant provided by BinjaiTree enables individual student groups to concentrate their efforts on delivering quality community projects, reducing the diversion of precious resources to individual group fundraising.

  • The project leader must be an existing SUSS full-time student.

  • The team must specify how they intend to design, devise, develop and deliver their projects and their desired outcomes based on their research and needs analysis with the identified community organisation.
