The National Higher Education Foundation has disbursed loans to 3,314 students amounting to RM5 million in Perak for pursuing higher education at the various institutes of higher learning in the country this year.
A total of 152 students from Manjung District received their loan cheques from the Minister of Transport and MP for Lumut, Dato’ Seri Kong Cho Ha. The money, about RM230,000 in total, was handed over to the successful applicants at a function held in Sitiawan recently.
The Minister told the recipients to value the assistance given by the government and to ensure that they complete their education with excellence. He reminded them not to shirk their responsibility of repaying the loan once they are employed and are in a position to do so. The money collected will be given out once more to other needy students.
