The aim of the Tertiary Education Assistance Program is to increase the capacity, knowledge, skills and overall education of our members in achieving high education success. This program aims to alleviate financial burdens associated with higher education, assisting members to achieve their dreams and aspirations in relation to their career path.
The objectives of the Program are:
- To identify all Gumala Members and Gumala Children pursuing Tertiary Education and ensure they are registered for the Gumala Educational Assistance Program
- To improve the educational outcomes of all Gumala Members and their children
- To increase awareness of National Tertiary Educational opportunities.
Through providing tertiary assistance, we hope to improve the number of members enrolled in and completing either tertiary, Cert IV or Diploma level qualifications. It includes assistance with expenses such as text books and/or required equipment, uniforms, stationary, enrolment fees, fuel and rent.
