Bukit Lawang

'Trust Scholarship'



Over the last 17 years, the Bukit Lawang Trust has made it its mission to ensure that financial poverty and other socio-economic factors are not a barrier to access to education. In fact it is our belief that everyone everywhere deserves equal and equitable access to education. That's why, for many years now. We have been seeking out Generous supporters, sponsors and good Samaritans to sponsor the tuition fees for our students to help them gain the very best opportunities they can, through access to good quality education. 

We are proud to announce that from 2021 the Bukit Lawang Trust will be launching its Scholarship scheme, to provide full funding for 1 new student from any community or education centre in North Sumatra to achieve the next level in education regardless of what level that may be, every single year! so if you want to sponsor our next student scholar, or you want to support one of our students below please do get in touch with us! 

Additionally, if you know of someone who really deserves this scholarship, living and studying in North Sumatra please let us know, we want to know about them!
