Ream Education Fund

Established in 2010 under REAM’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives, the objective of the fund is to provide one-off non-binding financial assistance to deserving under graduate students with constraints in family financial support but with good academic achievements pursuing tertiary education in civil engineering discipline including road infrastructure and or transportation in local public universities. To date, more than 300 selected students recommended by their respective universities have received this aid. Funds for this and other CSR initiatives are derived from organising various activities.

Each recipient received cash, a medallion and a certificate. They were also offered one-year subscription free membership in REAM and a minimum six (6) – month Graduate Employment Internship in major corporate sector companies involved in civil engineering.
