Scholarships For The Needy

Koon Yew Yin has issued the following scholarship offer to 50 poor and needy students for the next academic year at U TAR. This offer was posted here on Thursday, July 23rd, 2009 at 9.15pm which reads as follows: “I wish to offer scholarships to 50 poor students for the next academic year to study finance and accountancy in University TAR, Kampar, Perak on the following conditions:- 1. Each student’s family income should not be more than Rm 2,000 per month. 2. Students will be selected more on the basis of their financial need and not merely on their academic achievement. 3. Each scholarship is worth Rm 20,000 which should be enough for each student to cover the cost for the first year foundation course and the first semester of the degree course in finance and accountancy until he or she secures the PTPTN loan. This Government loan is given to all students irrespective of race and financial position who are doing a recognised degree course. 4. Students who receive my financial aid do not require to pay back the money or work for me after they graduate. But I want them to promise me that they will help other poor students when they have graduated and are financially solvent. UTAR takes in students in January and June every year. Students who are currently doing SPM can submit their applications to U TAR this October with their forecast results to start in January 2010. Needy students who are currently doing SPM or have passed the SPM can submit their applications to me.” Koon Yew Yin, yewyin@gmail.com27, Lengkok Harimau, 31400, Ipoh, Perak

  1. Is this person serious about this scholarship? It will cost him about RM1 million to sponsor all 50 students!

    I am really amazed with his generosity.
