1. The Community Engagement Fund (CEF) is created to support NUS students in initiating and implementing:
Community engagement projects that address social or community needs locally or overseas;
Events and programmes that will strengthen the culture of volunteerism and community engagement in NUS. Besides nurturing the i-NUS qualities (Inquisitiveness; Initiative; Inner Resilience; Imagination; Inclusiveness and Integrity) in our students through the process, CEF also hopes to develop our students into individuals with a strong sense of social responsibility and integration to the communities in Singapore and globally.
2. Students are strongly encourage to utilise CEF to launch a new project. For an existing project to be funded, applicants must be able to demonstrate improvement(s) in the form of methodology/implementation plan, or lessons learned and/or evidence of sustained impact.
3. 'Community engagement' is defined as the process of working collaboratively with identified group(s) of people to address issues that impact their well-being.
