Parliament in brief: PM on scholarships
Source: NSTonline, 09/05/2008

BETWEEN 2004 and 2007, a total of 6,084 Malaysian students were offered full scholarships by the Public Service Department to pursue their studies abroad, said Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

He said 4,540 students were Bumiputeras and 1,544 students were non-Bumiputeras.

Abdullah said 23,038 students were offered scholarships by the department to pursue their studies locally.

Of this total, 20,096 were Bumiputeras and 2,942 students were non-Bumiputera.


Wow, the number of non-bumiputera recipients is so low. Hope they can increase the numbers so we, non-bumiputera has more chances to pursue our dream courses too.

Sometimes I just sympathize those non-bumiputera students who get excellent results but fail to get scholarships. Even in this article, the distribution of scholarship is so unequal. Be more precise it's unfair!
