SENTRAL College in Penang has a total of 23 Star Education Fund scholarship awards worth RM388,500 for students taking up three education programmes in the institution.
The best thing about these scholarships is that they are all bond-free. Students will not be bonded upon graduating and will be free to pursue their dreams, said Sentral Technology College administrator May Tang.
“We are proud to have been selected by The Star to award 23 deserving students with these scholarships,” she said, adding that eligible students include those taking diplomas in accounting, computer systems technology or business studies.
Those studying for their Certified Accounting Technician qualification, Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) certification and Cambridge A Levels will also qualify.
Beyond that, the college is also offering the Sentral Merit Scholarship which includes tuition fee waivers.
Those who scored 9As and above in their SPM will receive full tuition fee waiver. Those with 8As will have a 50% waiver, while those with 7As, 6As and 5As or 4As will receive 40%, 30% and 15% respectively.
Housed in a 14-storey campus in Penang Street, Sentral College is among the few institutions to operate in the heart of the city’s heritage enclave.
“We are only a few hundred metres away from landmarks such as the Esplanade, the Kuan Yin temple and St George’s Church. The proximity of these heritage treasures goes a long way to helping our students enjoy their study life in Penang,” Tang smiled.
This 13-year-old college will exhibit their programmes at the Star Education Fair 2015 this weeked in the Subterranean Penang International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
