Instantly check eligibility and apply for the best scholarships
from top private abroad & local university funds of up to RM 25 million!
You can qualify to apply for scholarships, if you meet the requirements that are defined for the scholarships. When you explore for scholarships on our Uni Enrol site, we automatically check your eligibility for the respective scholarships based on the details in your Pathway Match profile. Typical scholarship requirements include:
At Uni Enrol, we have digitalised the application process for private universities and colleges in Malaysia, in order to enable students like you to fill up, upload and submit uni/college registration and scholarship application forms directly online with a single login on apply.unienrol.com.
Just drop us a message and without any additional cost, you will be assigned a dedicated counsellor that will guide you through the online application process and follow-up accordingly until the entire application with the university is concluded. This is normally the case because your desired university/college may not have a dedicated application portal for their registration and scholarships.
If the scholarship provider has prepared its own online application portal for an online submission, you will be informed accordingly.
The requirements and application to get a scholarship differ by scholarship providers.
In general, merit scholarships provided by private universities/colleges can be instantly secured through Uni Enrol as long as the academic requirements are met. These partial scholarships are awarded automatically upon application on a first-come-first-serve basis and therefore, students are advised to register with their preferred university/college early (with trial/forecast results where applicable) before the scholarship quota is full.
In the case of many non-merit scholarships (e.g. talent & leadership / financial / overseas scholarships), the slots are very limited. Therefore, the scholarship requirements are typically much higher e.g. in terms of academic and non-academic achievements. The application process is also more tedious (e.g. multiple assessments and interviews) so that only the most deserving candidates are shortlisted to receive the scholarships. If you are interested in these scholarships, then you would need to monitor the respective scholarship portals very closely so that you do not miss out on the application opening and submission deadline.
Overseas scholarships that you may consider, if you want to study abroad with full sponsorships, include:

Full scholarships that covers 100% of tuition fees are very limited and competitive in nature. Therefore, the students, who are ultimately shortlisted to be scholarship recipients are generally high achievers e.g.:
Alternatively, there are other financing options that you may consider to fully fund your studies like:
The more well-known government scholarships (or those provided by government-related agencies) in Malaysia are:

Many corporates are offering full scholarships to deserving students and their application is only open once a year. These include (but is not limited to):
Yes, you can still apply for PTPTN loan even if you are a scholarship recipient.
This is because most scholarships are just partial scholarships. Therefore, you can then use the PTPTN loan to pay for the tuition fee balance and any surplus can then be used to cover your study and liviing expenses. The only rare exceptions, where PTPTN may not be eligible, are recipients of full scholarships, where the uni/college fees are already fully covered by the scholarship provider.
In general, no, scholarship recipients do not have to pay back for the award received.
Note that most scholarships are granted as a reward to acknowledge the recipients' achievements (e.g. academic merit, sports) or conditions (e.g. financial need) and not given out as a loan to be repaid. However, scholarship providers may have the right to revoke the scholarship or to request for compensation, only when the recipients breached the terms and conditions as stipulated in the scholarship agreement.
Examples of breaches in scholarship agreements are:
In most cases, especially for scholarships offered directly by the university/college, the award only covers tuition fees and hence, it is directly deducted from the expected tuition fee payment. Every semester, scholarship recipients are just required to pay the net tuition fee during the start of every semester.
However, you must take note of the maintenance requirement of your scholarship i.e. the minimum CGPA or results that you need to maintain at the end of every semester, in order to continue to receive the scholarship in your next semester. If you do not meet the minimum requirement, the scholarship may be revoked or permanently downgraded for subsequent semesters.
