Sijil Tinggi Persekolahan Malaysia (STPM) high-achievers are invited to send in their application for Taylor's University Leadership and Innovation Programme (TULIP).
Taylor’s University Vice Chancellor and President, YBhg Professor Dato’ Dr Hassan Said said that the move stemmed from the university’s commitment to provide opportunities to highly qualified students to have access to quality education at tertiary level.
“We are offering a total of RM 5.8 million worth of scholarships to qualified STPM top scorers to provide them an opportunity to graduate with a degree of their choice including pharmacy, computer science, business, biosciences and engineering,” he said.
“The programme that we are offering is unique as it does not only offer financial aid to deserving students but it also exposes them to a specially tailored leadership and innovations programme aimed to improve their employability upon graduation,” shared Professor Hassan.
According to the Ministry of Education Malaysia’s Graduate Employability Blueprint 2012-2017, employers today do not just look for students with good academic track record but those with good communication, collaboration, cultural adaptation, critical thinking and problem solving, creativity and innovation skills.
TULIP is a specially tailored programme to provide successful applicants with these capabilities via its Leadership Development Programme, Innovation and Entrepreneurship Training Programme, Global Mobility Programme, internship with top employers and Service Learning modules.
The scholarship is now open for application until 24 August 2014. Interested STPM applicants with minimum GPA of 3.50 in 3 subjects (min Grade C) with outstanding ECA record are invited to apply. For more information, please contact:
