Indian Trust Fund

The High Commission of India, Kuala Lumpur, administers a scholarship called the Indian Trust Fund, through which it provides a small amount of approximately RM 1,000 per year, for Malaysian Indian students who pursue their studies in a local college in Malaysia.

This is to help the economically weaker section of the Malaysian Indian society who are meritorious and who are finding it difficult to find the means for higher education.

The application forms are put out in June-July every year. Renewal candidates also have to re-apply to get the scholarship, but only fresh candidates will be called for interview. Only those candidates who have been selected in the interview will receive the scholarship. When too many renewal candidates apply, not all will get the renewal – in such cases the renewal of scholarship will depend on certain criteria set by the selection committee of the Indian Trust Fund.

The application forms can be obtained from the Education Section at the High Commission of India, Kuala Lumpur, or can also be downloaded from here.
The last date to apply is usually at the end of July each year.
