Guide to KPM Bursary

LAST UPDATED: 23 March 2017

From 2012 to 2015, the KPM Bursary was provided by the Ministry of Education to students who took SPM in 2011, 2012, 2013 or 2014 and obtained 9A+ or above. The KPM Bursary sponsored for pre-university programmes which included A Level, International Baccalaureate (IB), STPM, Matriculation and Foundation at selected colleges in Malaysia. It was guaranteed that every student who met the requirements would be offered the KPM Bursary, so there was no selection process involved. After completing the pre-university programme under the KPM Bursary, students would be offered the Program Lepasan Bursary which sponsors for degree courses if they meet the requirements.

In 2016, the KPM Bursary was replaced by the Program Bursary which was offered to SPM 2015 students who obtained 9A+ or above in SPM. Unlike the KPM Bursary previously, the Program Bursary is provided by Public Service Department (JPA).

In 2017, the Program Bursary was replaced by the Program Penajaan 9A+ which is offered to SPM 2016 students who obtained 9A+ or above in SPM. Unlike the KPM Bursary and Program Bursary previously, the Program Penajaan 9A+ only sponsors for STPM, Matriculation and Foundation programmes but not A Level or International Baccalaureate (IB).
