RM 25,000 for 1st Class Honours

Wow! If only they introduced this when I was doing my degree. Anyway, I do hope that my brother who recently graduated with a 1st class honours in Performing Arts will also be considered for this award.

He’s bound to pursue his postgraduate studies in the USA soon.
