Selangor Higher Education Aid

Thanks to my blog reader for sharing this with me.

Attached is an article from NST


The RM1,000 higher education aid promised by the Selangor state government through its Pakatan Rakyat manifesto during the 12th general election will begin with the low-income group in the state earning less than RM1,500 per month per household.
Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim said the state executive council concerned will come up with the procedure for identifying those qualifying for higher education aid from all races.

He said the first phase of the education aid will focus on students from the low-income group who were offered places for degree and diploma courses only.

“The state financial officer has been directed to prepare a budget for the aid,” Abdul Khalid told reporters after officiating the Selangor Islamic Religious Affairs Department (Jais)’s Teachers Day 2008 celebration here today.

He said the process to apply for the aid would be done through the district offices or state assemblymen and will begin soon for this year’s June and July university intake,” he said.

Would encourage any of my blog readers to share with me any event that you come across. As long as the event/activity/initiative is education/charity/youth oriented and is not-for-profit, I would be more than happy to post it to share!
