Maju Institute for Education Development (MIED) MIC Education Loan/Scholarship

Since the commencement of its operations in 1984, MIED has assisted needy students by providing study loans to pursue their courses and today it has become the leading provider of study loans to members of the Malaysian Indian community seeking such assistance for further education. From the eighties to this day, MIED's annual disbursement amount has steadily increased and helped thousands of Indian students to pursue higher education and thereby achieve major career and life goals.

For instance, in the year 2004, MIED disbursed more than RM9 million in loans to students pursuing higher education. The scarce financial resources of MIED did not deter if from approving the increased number of loan applications.

The scope of the disbursement of study loans to students were expanded last year to accommodate more subjects. Other than providing loans to students pursuing traditional courses such as Medicine, Law and Accountancy, huge amounts of loans were allocated this year to students of Information Technology and Sciences. This was in tune with the government's call for a more technology based society, thus helping to spur growth our economy. MIED does not encourage students abroad, particularly when the course is available locally. With this outlook, MIED is able to help more students pursue tertiary education and at the same time to promote the local education industry.

THE MIC-owned Maju Institute of Educational Development (MIED) has launched a scholarship scheme to assist Malaysian Indian students who are unsuccessful in getting scholarships.

MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said that scholarships would be offered to those who have excellent results in the SPM and STPM examinations.

“We will give priority to those who had submitted their results for the annual President’s Merit Award,” he said.

According to Samy Vellu, only 50 out of the 192 students who had appealed to the Public Services Department (PSD), through MIED, for scholarships, were successful.

“We will absorb the 142 unsuccessful students into our scholarship scheme to enable them to pursue foundation studies in science or business at AIMST University in Sungai Petani, Kedah,” he said, adding that students who scored 10 1As and above would be awarded full scholarships whilst those with 9 1As and 8 1As would be awarded 60% and 50% fee waivers, respectively, to pursue foundation courses in science.

“There are also about 100 full scholarships for students who wish to pursue foundation studies in business,” he said.

This scheme will help more Indian students further their studies.

Samy Vellu had earlier presented trophies, certificates and cash awards to 374 students who scored 8 1As and above in the SPM examinations, and 37 students who had 4As and above in the STPM examinations last year.

“By honouring these high achievers, we hope to motivate them and build up their self-esteem and confidence,” he said.

MIC, through MIED, has honoured 2,074 students who have done well in the SPM and STPM examinations between 2000 and 2007.
