PLANS to pursue further education are often thwarted by the lack of financial security.
It is to put such financial concerns to rest that scholarships and discount schemes are offered by private institutions of higher learning such as Prime Group of Colleges, a subsidiary of SEG International Bhd.
Four outstanding performers in the Prime Group of Colleges' foundation courses were given the Merit Award and MSC Entrance Scholarship Award recently.
“Based on their excellence in education (straight As) and active participation in extra-mural activities, the MSC students took home between RM9,000 and RM20,000, while the Merit Award winners received RM500 to RM1,000 each,” said Prime College’s acting chief executive Vijendran Arulrajah, who presented the award certificates at a ceremony held at the college auditorium.
It has been the Prime Group's long-standing tradition to reward outstanding students
“The award will serve as a motivation for them to maintain high quality standards in both their academic and extra-mural performance,” Vijendran added.
MSC International College recipients – Wong Sin Sin and Wong Li Fen – were awarded partial and full scholarships valued at RM9,600 and RM19,200, respectively.
Sin Sin and Li Fen are first year students in the Diploma in Industrial Design and Diploma in Interior Design courses, respectively. It was double joy for the duo as they are also exempted from one semester of study, having specialised in art studies in secondary school.
The Prime Merit Award winners are Chu Yen San, Angie Tan, Suen Wooi Hua and Chong Yi Wei. Yen San, Wooi Hua and Yi Wei are engineering undergraduates, while Angie is pursuing a Diploma in Management.
