Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said that these students will then be eligible for local or overseas scholarships for their tertiary studies from 2014 onwards if they meet the required criteria.
“For the Overseas Degree Programme Scholarships (Biasiswa Program Ijazah Luar Negara, PILN), students must have a minimum cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 3.5 or its equivalent in their pre-university studies.
“Students who wish to pursue medicine, dentistry and pharmacy (overseas) must have unconditional offers of admission from any of the top 10 universities in the world, based on the list below.
“For other fields of study, students must have unconditional offers of admission from any of the top 50 universities in the world (as determined by the ministry),” he said in a statement on Tuesday.
The bursaries will cover costs for either the Sijil Tinggi Persekolahan Malaysia (STPM), matriculation studies, the International Baccalaurate (IB), A-Levels, or other foundation courses provided by the Higher Education Ministry.
Students can check details of the bursaries and update their student profiles at www.moe.gov.my from April 16 onwards.
Muhyiddin who is also the Education Minister, said that the top 50 students in the SPM 2011 will be offered scholarships under the National Scholarship Programme (Program Biasiswa Nasional, PBN).
“Sponsorship for the top 50 SPM 2011 students, or the creme de la creme based on the ministry's list, is for tertiary study at the top universities in the world and is based on academic merit.
“Selected candidates will be offered scholarships for their foundation and undergraduate studies for the fields of their choice in local and foreign universities, subject to the conditions set the Public Service Department (PSD),” he said.
Selection for the 2014 PILN is divided into four categories; scholastic ability (20%); ethnic population (60%); Sabah and Sarawak bumiputra (10%); and the socially disadvantaged (10%).
Students' co-curricular participation, socio-economic backgrounds, and interviews will be taken into account alongside their academic ability with the weightage for these criteria varying according to the four categories outlined above.
Muhyiddin said scholarship candidates will also be assessed by the Student Assessment Centre (SAC) during their interviews.
“The SAC is a more comprehensive selection and assessment method based on determined competencies including interest, behaviour, leadership, patriotism, creativity, endurance, and confidence.
“The assessment panel is made up of Government officials from various races, professions and job grades,” he said.
Students who have completed their pre-university studies this year are also eligible for PSD scholarships.
Muhyiddin explained that the PSD will offer 10,300 scholarships to students who have completed their pre-university studies to pursue their undergraduate degrees at recognised local public and private tertiary institutions.
“The Government will spend a sum of RM2.12bil this year to pay the cost of students' tertiary education in local and foreign universities,” he said.
Muhyiddin added that a total of 300 students will be sponsored by the PSD for engineering courses in Japan, Korea, France and Germany.
