This article will talk about scholarship in Malaysia by corporations and private entities.

In this day and age, you can apply for a lot of things online, even for scholarships!

No more messy paperwork and running around town to hand in your application.

So how can you secure a scholarship when you apply for university in Malaysia?

Here are 4 tips to help you get that scholarship:



Know What You Want to Study

It sounds easy but this is the trickiest part. Your research will be much more efficient when you have a clearer idea of what courses you want to study or where you plan to study.

Some scholarships cater to a specific area of study, like these Nursing scholarships

Such scholarships are perfect when you know what you want to study in university.

For those who know which university they want to choose, visiting their website will help you kick start your search for a suitable scholarship. 

Alternatively, you can easily explore the scholarship database that we have compiled from over 80+ private universities locally and abroad on our Uni Enrol website.



Find Out the Details

There are many types of scholarships in Malaysia out there.

Merit scholarships focus solely on your results, while leadership scholarships focus on your activities in a leadership position (club, community projects etc).

Some scholarships also cover only tuition fees, leaving you to foot the bill for other university fees.

Do make sure you read the fine print so that you can better plan your funds for your studies.

There also are scholarships that require you to either be from a certain location or remain at a specific location after graduation.

Example: Penang Future Foundation scholarships

You will find these details when you check out the item page of the respective scholarships that we have listed here



Know What it Requires

Not all scholarships in Malaysia have the same requirements.

Some require you to maintain a certain grade during your studies so that your scholarship can be renewed each year.

There are also scholarships that require you to perform community service each semester.

For instance, the Taylor’s College Merit Scholarship requires successful applicants of the full scholarship to join the Scholar’s Club and participate during the duration of their scholarship.
