The five underrepresented groups / 2019 Inclusion Initiative Scholarships are as follows:
a. CRCC Asia & AHEAD.org – Students with Disabilities Scholarship: this scholarship is for students with a physical or cognitive impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities of that student, or who have a record of such an impairment, or who are regarded as having such an impairment, and who are actively involved in promoting awareness of issues faced by people with that impairment.

3. CRCC Asia is committed to inclusion for all. Therefore, those students who do not qualify for any of the five scholarships set out above may still apply. This scholarship is open to anybody who meets the criteria in paragraph 1 above, provided that the applicant provides on their application form a suggestion for an underrepresented group that CRCC Asia should include in its 2020 Inclusion Initiative Scholarship program. This scholarship will be awarded based primarily on needs-based criteria.

d. The applicant’s socio-economic status and any other relevant needs-based criteria.
e. For those applying for the five scholarships for underrepresented groups, the applicant’s record of active involvement within their community.

Evidence of active participation within the community can be in the form of a letter of reference from an appropriate person or organisation.
