“Everyone has the right to quality education and the emphasis on providing that access increases with the rapid technological changes that are occurring. In fact, financial aid is more than just helping deserving and underprivileged students to obtain the education they need. Similar to what is outlined by the United Nations, under the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4, UTAR is doing what it can to achieve equality in education.”
