The University Putra Malaysia (UPM) is now collaborating with Sime Darby Foundation (YSD) to bring around some decent scholarships who want to pursue a postgraduate degree in UPM.
The School of Graduate Studies will gladly welcome a number of candidates who meet qualifying criteria.
The application deadline stretches until February 2018. The scholarships are available for the postgraduate level of study as has been specified.
The study subject is a toss-up between great many subjects. You can choose from:
- Gene study
- Gene editing
- Palm oil
- Sustainable waste to wealth technology
No specific number of the scholarship has been given. All we know is that the full scholarship will take care of a number of expenditures, including tuitions fees, living allowances, books and thesis allowance.
Scholarships are tenable in Malaysia.
In order to get enrolled, you will need to get your undergraduate/masters of science with a decent GPA. Usually 3.20 will suffice, but the higher you score, the better your chances to enrol would be.
We welcome everyone who also has a good command of English to enrol and not give it another thought. You will have to provide a sufficient proof that your command of the language is up to scratch.
