  13. admin Article Author

    Lim, you have to secure a place first. too bad the sponsor didnt realise that many still waiting for the result.

    daniel , yes you can

  14. nasha

    hey, admin.. can someone who wants to do science and tech apply for this scholarship?bcoz it only says that it caters for certain fields,but does not include scinece & tech…

  15. Vikki

    If a second semester student apply for this scholarship, will the scholarship backdate the expenses for the 1st and 2nd semester or it will only start payment from the 3rd semester?
    how much is the amount allocated for each student for one semester?
    i understand that students have to serve a bond with nstp group upon completion of study, so does that mean nstp will automatically offer job to the student upon completion of study? and for how long is the bondage? if i want to further my study to master or phd level after completion of my bachelor degree, can i postpone the bondage?

  16. miza


    i’m already finish my degree right now and now still waiting for continue study for master in education….my question is it NSTP provide scholarship for master?

  17. daniel

    can I just say that this sponsorship is just a big liar from NST? I’ve applied, but then NST didn’t send me any notice about this. And there’s no such thing about sponsorship on the NST web page after the application has been closed.
