KUALA LUMPUR: The Kuala Lumpur Metropolitan University College (KLMUC) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Monday (Oct 30) with Yayasan Seri Negara (YSN) to provide RM7mil worth of scholarships to police personnel and their families who aspire to study at the university.

The MOU was signed by Cosmopoint Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Najmie Noordin, representing KLMUC, while YSN CEO Amirul Fadhil Che Ismail represented the foundation.

During the same event, YSN patron Tan Sri Mazlan Lazim, who is also a former inspector-general of police, received an appointment letter as an Adjunct Professor at KLMUC, which was presented by Najmie.

Najmie said the scholarship, known as the Seri Negara Scholarship, would provide more opportunities for the police personnel and their families to pursue diploma, bachelor's degree, master's, and doctorate (PhD) programmes at KLMUC.

"KLMUC is increasingly becoming the choice for police officers and personnel to pursue their studies.

"We have more than 300 police graduates, and this year alone, 200 of them will receive their degrees at the convocation ceremony on Saturday (Nov 4).

"I believe that this number will increase because it is not only about promotion, but also about preparing for the post-retirement period, for example, entering the corporate world," he told Bernama here Monday.

Najmie said KLMUC plans to give 300 police officers an opportunity to continue their studies next year. The qualifications of the scholarship holders will also be assessed, including household income and courses taken.

Among the courses preferred to the security forces at KLMUC is the Master of Business Administration (MBA) as the duration of study is 12 months, the classes are mixed and the tuition fees are competitive, he said.

Meanwhile, Mazlan said the MOU was a new step as the YSN had in the past focused more on the social welfare for police personnel, their families and pensioners.

"As the patron of YSN and also appointed as an Adjunct Professor, I will boost the morale of eligible members and encourage them to further their education to advance their careers," he said. - Bernama
