JPA scholarships for Sabahans, Sarawakians too

KOTA KINABALU: Chairman of the Cabinet's Technical Committee for Sabah and Sarawak Bumiputeras Tan Sri Bernard Dompok said today that he has only received a few appeals from the two states on this year's Public Service Department scholarship awards.

He said he had spoken to Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz, who is in charge of PSD, on the appeals and would present the grounds for them.

Dompok said he had not received many appeals although he had a facebook for applicants to contact him directly.

"Perhaps they've got places already," he told reporters after opening a national seminar on biogas and palm oil mill effluent treatment here. 

Dompok, who is Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister, said the five per cent quota that Sabah and Sarawak each got was to ensure that each state got at least 75 of the 1,500 scholarships awarded.

"They are also entitled to bid for other parts of the quota -- 20 per cent and 60 per cent (for top achievers) and I believe some Sabahans and Sarawakians have got into that," Dompok said.

"In fact, this year, there have been more than 75 scholarships for Sabah and more than 75 for Sarawak. That's why I have not received many complaints," he said. -- BERNAMA
