JPA overseas scholarship abolishment only affecting non-bumi

This is another trick by BN to discriminate Chinese and other non-bumis. Bumi students still have tons of overseas scholarship from MARA, Petranas and other GLCs without JPA scholarship.

Let talk about scholarships from the public fund with fact

BN government awarded 3500 scholarships each year, 2000 is allocated for MARA and remaining 1500 is for JPA. JPA scholarships are then divided into bumi 500 and non-bumi 500.

Therefore, the ratio is 86% for bumi and 14% for non-bimi.

Let say I submit to NEP 30% mandatory share for bumi, 86% is still well above 30% quota.

By abolishing JPA scholarships, the goal score will change to 100% bumi and 0% to non-bumi.

God saves Malaysia with apartheid policy!

PM: Scholarships for overseas undergraduate studies to be reduced

KUALA LUMPUR: Scholarships for overseas undergraduate studies will gradually be reduced, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

He said the Government would now concentrate on awarding scholarships for overseas postgraduate studies.

“The Government’s position is that scholarships involving overseas programme will be concentrated on the post-graduate level, but it will be done gradually so that we can build up institutions of higher standing and ranking in this country,” he said after meeting with Islamic religious teachers here Tuesday.

“Scholarships for critical courses at undergraduate level will continue until the country builds the capacity of its local institutions,” he said when asked to comment on MCA asking the Government to give priority to awarding overseas scholarships to top scorers.

It was reported earlier that the Public Service Department (PSD)had delayed announcing the names of its scholarship recipients by a week, after meeting the MCA over applications sent by top SPM scorers.

During the meeting, MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek and Deputy Education Minister Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong, who is the party’s Youth chief, brought up the cases of 1,304 students to PSD director-general Tan Sri Ismail Adam.

The MCA Youth Education Bureau had put together the appeals over a week and those involved were students of all races.
