Accessible education and scholarships at UOW Malaysia for B40 and M40 families

UOW Malaysia bridges the education gap, offering over 20 scholarships, grants and discounts to pave the way for brighter futures for families in need.

PARENTS in the B40 and M40 groups, who are encountering difficulties because their children are prepared for tertiary studies but might not be financially equipped to support their education, can consider UOW Malaysia as a viable option.

Recent scholarships and financial aid programs at UOW Malaysia now make it possible for their children to receive a high-quality Australian education, right here in Malaysia.

One of the recent offerings is the Dato' CQ Teo Scholarship, aimed at children of parents with a combined monthly income under RM10,000.

This scholarship, dedicated to the memory of Dato’ Teo Chiang Quan, the founder of Kolej Damansara Utama (KDU), focuses on aiding bright students in need.

In early 2021, before vaccines arrived in Malaysia, Teo contracted the Covid-19 virus and, after a 21-day fight, unfortunately succumbed to the disease.

To honor Teo's legacy and philanthropy, UOW Malaysia and Paramount Corporation Berhad established this scholarship.

In 2018, KDU became a part of the UOW, one of Australia's top public universities and this 100% scholarship ensures that promising students from low to middle-income families can benefit from UOW Malaysia's high education standards.

This financial support for Malaysian students is available for those pursuing diplomas, bachelor’s, master’s, or Doctor of Philosophy degrees.

To qualify, students must be studying full-time at UOW Malaysia and lack their own financial means.

The scholarship covers tuition fees, educational aids, and reasonable cost-of-living expenses throughout the student’s period of study at UOW Malaysia.

Aiming to break financial barriers, UOW Malaysia ensures that deserving students receive top-notch education without financial constraints. Aiming to break financial barriers, UOW Malaysia ensures that deserving students receive top-notch education without financial constraints.

UOW Malaysia also offers another financial aid program, dedicated to the B40 group in Malaysia's Northern Corridor Economic Region (NCER), covering Perlis, Kedah, Penang, and Perak.

Known as the 88 Captains Scholarship, this aid is for students from NCER families with a combined household income under RM4,849.

Established in early 2022, 88 Captains is a society formed by top industry achievers in Malaysia's northern region.

Upon the scholarship's formation in December 2022, the society expressed its aim to assist 30 to 40 students initially, allocating between RM15,000 and RM20,000 per student.

Students receiving aid for over 30% of their tuition fees through this scholarship will participate in the 88 Captains Student Ambassador Programme, requiring 48 hours per year during their studies.

This initiative provides valuable industry exposure through ambassadorial roles at various events, leadership development programs, and workshops.

Recipients of the 88 Captains Scholarship can also expect to receive permanent job offers guaranteed for three years within the NCER after completing their education.

Aside from these two, UOW Malaysia offers over 20 scholarships, financial aids, grants, and discount schemes for its students.

"As providers of the top private education in Malaysia, we don't want financial issues to be a hindrance to students who prove themselves worthy.

"We are always ready to help, because we want our students to succeed," says UOW Malaysia vice-chancellor Prof Dr. Chong Beng Keok.
