Wee raps PSD over scholarships

MCA Youth chief Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong has lambasted the Public Service Department (PSD) on the awarding of overseas scholarships for top scorers, Sin Chew Daily and China Press reported.

Dr Wee, who is also the Deputy Education Minister, said the MCA Youth has requested MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat and three other MCA ministers to bring the matter to the Cabinet today.

This was to ascertain the procedure and criteria of awarding scholarships to students to study overseas, Dr Wee said after receiving complaints from two students, one with 14 1As and the other 13 1As, that they did not get overseas scholarships but were offered local matriculation courses instead.

Dr Wee said their friends who scored 9 1As were offered scholarships to study overseas.

PSD director-general Tan Sri Ismail Adam also told the daily that top students who did not receive overseas scholarships would be offered scholarships to pursue their studies in local public universities or private universities.

He said 8,000 top students applied for scholarships but there were only 2,000 overseas scholarships available, adding that students could appeal to the PSD.
