Description

The Closing The Gap programme aims to empower high-potential, under-represented students with the knowledge, skills and mindset to enter universities and achieve their fullest potential. We do this via a two to three-year mentoring programme that combines enrichment workshops, university simulation Residential Camp and personalised mentoring by university graduates and young professionals.

In 2021, in order to support students across Malaysia with reaching university, we have adapted our core programme into a fully virtual ReachUni programme. Our 1-year fully virtual programme is targeted to support students in Form 4, 5 and 6 outside KL and Selangor through workshops, group mentoring, life skills and career guidance.

Since its establishment in 2016, CTG has impacted 175 Scholars across 4 cohorts. In our first four cohorts, Scholars have successfully unlocked about RM4.8 million worth in scholarships to pursue tertiary education both within Malaysia and internationally. For more information on CTG’s impact refer to the impact report summary below or take a look at our Annual Report here.

In line with our goal to shift the direction of scholarship providers to be more equitable, we were brought into Yayasan Tunku Abdul Rahman (YTAR), a non-governmental organisation that was established in 1966 to revamp and manage their Biasiswa Tunku Abdul Rahman (BTAR) scholarship. The BTAR scholarship empowers high-potential, deserving students to pursue higher education in public and private institutions locally. As part of the scholarship, recipients who are also known as Tunku Scholars undergo a 2-year leadership training to prepare them as young leaders equipped with the skills, mindsets and values to contribute to nation-building.
