GUIDELINES FOR APPLICANTS 2020
Applicants must be Malaysian Anglican belonging to the Diocese of West Malaysia, below the age of 35 at the time of application. Applicants must have resided in West Malaysia for a minimum period of 3 years prior to the time of application. A Baptism Certificate from the Diocese of West Malaysia or equivalent is a prerequisite. Candidates must have been baptised for at least a year at the time of application.
- Applicants must undertake a course leading to an Academic Bachelor’s Degree with or without Education. Those pursuing a postgraduate Teaching Diploma or its equivalent may be considered. The course of study must be pursued fulltime in Malaysia, in a Government University/College, or a private University/College recognised by the Ministry of Education.
- In the instance where a student has to go overseas for the final year of his course of study, as in a (3 + 1) programme, an exception may be made. However, the value of the scholarship offered for the year would be the same as if studying in Malaysia. The course of study must be compliant with the syllabus taught in public or private institutions recognised by the Ministry of Education. Only candidates who meet the requirements will be called for an interview.
- A Letter of Offer has to be made by a University/College before an Application Form for the Scholarship may be submitted. The Scholarship is for tuition and compulsory academic fees only. The Diocese of West Malaysia will make direct payments to the University/College. Successful candidates may not hold a scholarship from another source to cover tuition and compulsory academic fees. They may however, receive supplementary support from other sources to cover living expenses.
Successful applicants will have the Scholarship awarded to them for a period of up to four years. Successful applicants must look for a guarantor/surety to sign the agreement as a guarantee that the applicant will fulfil the terms and conditions of the agreement. The latest 3 months’ salary slip of the guarantor/surety must be submitted when the agreement is signed together with a copy of his/her MyKad or IC (front and back).
- Successful applicants would need to show proof of having passed their exams and receiving an offer for them to continue with their studies.
- On successful completion of their course, applicants must be willing to teach in a public or private institution in Malaysia for at least four years. The responsibility of seeking and finding a teaching position in a public or private institution on successful completion of the course lies with the candidate.
- Undergraduates already undertaking a course of study in a private or public institution may also apply. Their years of compulsory service in public or private institutions will be commensurate with the number of years they receive the award.
- Failing to complete their course or refusing their obligation to teach will entail candidates having to return the full value of the Scholarship spent on them within 7 days of notice.
- Application forms must be complete and submitted by given date in hard copy to:
The Executive Secretary for Education
Diocese of West Malaysia
214, Jalan Pahang, 53000, Kuala Lumpur.
