International internship provider CRCC Asia has launched five scholarships for students as part of corporate social responsibility month. The scholarship will help students from various backgrounds undertake a program in Beijing or Ho Chi Minh city, reported The PIE News.
“When we decided to move forward with our inclusion initiative, we took time to reflect on the tremendous social impact that we make throughout the world with our programs and beyond,” said CRCC chief executive Daniel Nivern.
“These scholarships will allow us to dramatically change the lives of five individuals through five scholarships, fully funded by CRCC Asia.”
In addition to the scholarships, CRCC Asia’s offices will also volunteer for organisations including Wrap Up London, Second Harvest Food Bank in Tokyo, Saigon Children Orphanage in Ho Chi Minh City, and the Migrant Children Foundation in Beijing. “It is our commitment to open the door and provide access to all. We have highlighted the gap within the industry and aim to provide access to underrepresented groups,” Palazzolo said.
“They don’t need to conform to the social misconceptions that ‘because one comes from an underrepresented group that they simply can not take part in these opportunities’. The door is open to all and you are welcome.”
