The inaugural Institutions of Higher Learning Games (SUKIPT) is set to offer outstanding participants and athletes scholarships from the ministry.
Deputy Higher Education Minister Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah said 22 events will be contested in SUKIPT, from Oct 28 to Nov 11, with the opening and closing ceremonies held at the Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) Shah Alam campus.
“Champions will be eligible for these sports scholarships,” he told reporters after officiating the Institutions of Higher Learning ‘3 ON 3’ basketball carnival, here Friday.
On the basketball carnival, he said the sport was no longer dominated by one race such as the Chinese.
He said the ministry felt the sport must be promoted as more than 500,000 non-Chinese Malaysians were also playing basketball.
