KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 6 (Bernama) -- The National Co-operative Organization of
Malaysia (Angkasa) will offer scholarships for excellent academic students to
pursue their higher education at public higher learning institutions, starting
May this year.
Angkasa president Prof Datuk Dr Mohd Ali Baharum said a first batch of 16
students would be offered scholarships.
Mohd Ali said schools with cooperatives in their respective schools can
propose students who achieved excellent results for such scholarship but they
must also have received offers from public institutions.
"The initiative is a way of encouraging students in schools to participate
in cooperatives at their respective schools.
"The schools cooperative known as Gerakan Koperasi Sekolah Malaysia has
attained international recognition from the International Co-operative
Alliance-ICA," he said.
Mohd Ali added that scholarships offered by Angkasa would be different from
scholarships offered by the National Sports Council.
