For those of us who are born in Perak, we are eligible for certain benefits under the foundation scheme. When I log into their website, there are a few schemes that we can apply. One of them which I am eligible for is the Dermasiswa Pendidikan (Bursary) for my girl. Students who are entering Matriculation, Diploma, Undergrad and Postgraduates are eligible to get a certain sum from the Yayasan Perak.
There are certain criteria for eligibility, such as basic salary below RM3000, a list of Universities approved by the foundation and signed by your area State Assembly man. No interviews are needed, just submit a form which can be downloaded at their website http://www.yayasanperak.com.my.
There is also a small sum for newborn babies and those who are in primary/secondary schools. Well, I guess there is no harm trying, as long as we are Perakians, we are eligible to apply. If I have known earlier, I would have applied for my sons as well. Anyway, thanks to my ex-colleague, if he had not come by to my office, I would have missed this cheque below.
Contribution fund in aid of Bursary or "Donation-ship?"
Please do take note, if you are eligible, why not?
I am sure other states have this kind of foundation too...
