The Indian Scholarship & Trust Fund (ISTF)

The Indian Scholarship & Trust Fund (ISTF) has been providing financial assistance to Malaysian students of Indian origin studying at Universities, Colleges, Polytechnics and some selected institutions in Malaysia. The ISTF is now open for receiving applications for the academic year 2012-13. Please note that the financial assistance provided is only supplementary in nature and would NOT cover the full cost of studies.

The Indian High Commission here said in a statement Wednesday that the ISTF was now open for the 2012-13 academic year.

Among the first time ISTF applicants, only the shortlisted candidates will be called for an interview, and only those candidates selected in the interview process would be awarded the financial assistance from the ISTF.

Previous recipients of the ISTF’s financial assistance, who are still pursuing the same course of study, are eligible to re-apply for the ISTF’s financial assistance for another one time, by submitting the ISTF application form along with their latest mark-sheets and proof of study. The renewal students will not be called for the interview.
