KUOK Foundation is one of the option for all students who are pursuing tertiary education and facing financial difficulties. The best thing about this award is that you can take up part-loan part-grant award and start to pay back half amount of the loan only after you graduate from the tertiary institution.
The other very good thing is that the loan is interest-free !! I'll describe the type of award offered by KUOK Foundation...
KUOK Foundation Berhad is one of the charity company subsidised by KUOK organisation, by a Malaysian Tycoon Robert Kuok (known as Sugar King of Malaysia). Every year this company helped a lot of Malaysians fulfiled their dreams of pursuing higher education without financial problem. The above awards are not scholarships but are financial assistance given to needy students in the form of interest-free study loans or part-loan, part-grant study awards. Study loans are repayable by monthly instalments upon graduation. The type of award to be offered to any one student will be decided at the absolute discretion of the Foundation.
Basically KUOK Foundation helps students from various backgrounds but concentrate more to those facing financial difficulties. The other rule from KUOK Foundation is that the student MUST BE ACCEPTED into one of the local public tertiary institutions, IPTA (or other higher institutions, IPTS as listed by KUOK Foundation) OR accepted into a SINGAPORE PUBLIC UNIVERSITY (National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University or Singapore Management University).
