Deserving young scholars in Penang are being offered an amazing opportunity. The deadline is June 18, 2017, so hurry!
The Penang Future Foundation (PFF) initiative kicked off by the Penang state government offers scholarships to deserving scholars to study Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), as well as Accountancy and Finance. With a substantial donation from the Penang Turf Club and aided by contributions from the private sector, the PFF money chest began with a pledged sum of RM40mil to support the state’s efforts to nurture Penang as a talent hub and reduce brain drain.
When the PFF scholarship programme was launched in April 2015, it was open to all Malaysians below the age of 25 with a minimum cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 3.0 and a household income below RM15,000 per month. For every RM20,000 in tuition fees awarded, scholars were bonded for a year, with a commitment to work in Penang for a minimum period of one year. Over the past two years, 192 scholarships have been awarded.
