PUTRAJAYA, 16 Feb 2017:
There are no new sponsorships from any government agency for local students intending to further their studies in Egypt as the situation there is still not completely stable, says Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh.
“However, it is the right and choice of students if they still want to study there on their own.
“Parents who want to send their children overseas should know the latest situation there.
“Right now, the situation in Egypt has not fully settled down, our embassy there is still monitoring the security situation there,” he said after handing out contributions from the Malaysian Students Education Fund to students here today.
Idris said it was understood that at present, Malaysian students in Egypt who were sponsored by the government were those finishing their studies.
At the event today, Idris handed contributions amounting to US$94,000 from the fund initiated by the Federation of Peninsular Malay Students (GPMS) to 16 Malaysian final-year medical and dentistry students who are still studying in Egypt.
He said the money was given to students in Egypt who were facing difficulty paying the tuition fees of their universities.
“The GPMS contribution today is for the second phase, while in the first phase, US$92,000 was given to 10 students studying in tertiary institutions in Egypt.”
Political secretary to the prime minister, Datuk Jailani Ngah represented Datuk Seri Najib Razak in presenting a contribution of RM1 million to the education fund.
