Hey guys! Sooo, the 2016 SPM results were just released today! and the application for this JPA scholarship to Japan, Korea, France and Germany just opened today as well!
Okay first things first, if you meet the minimum requirements for this scholarship, don’t hesitate to apply. Although I’m under the scholarship to go to Japan, I’ll just give you all a brief explanation on the whole scholarship. 🙂 I’ll write a more detailed post on the one to Japan soon (provided I don’t procrastinate heh)
Something new for this year’s scholarship: They’re offering you guys to take up Social Science for the scholarship to France & Science and Technology for the scholarship to Korea and Germany! (it used to be limited to Engineering only)
Before applying, I thought that it’d be good if you’d aware of:

Yup it’s stated as a scholarship but I just want you guys to be aware of these changes in the Terms and Conditions (the change was implemented since 2016) of the scholarship. It’s a government scholarship so it’s self-explanatory 🙂 （当たり前）
Deadline (this is extremely important as late applications won’t be entertained): 5 pm, 22nd March 2017
So how do you apply?
Just go to this website (eSila) and click on the ‘Daftar’ button to create an account to apply for it. Then fill in all the necessary details and submit it to the website.
Easy peasy lemon squeezy 🙂 There’s gonna be quite a lot of stuff to fill so just remember to double-check the information you’ve provided before hitting the submit button. Ok la not that hard, just a lot of details to fill in. You can do it slowly and continue filling up the forms the next day as long as you remember to click ‘save’ after inputting new info into your account.
You’ll be given a confirmation slip (Slip Pengesahan Permohonan Penajaan Program JKPJ Tahun 2017) after submitting all your information and don’t forget to print it out/save it in somewhere you wouldn’t forget because it’s the only proof you have for applying for this scholarship 🙂
Lastly, you’ll have to constantly check for the applications on the website yourself after the deadline (to know if you’re called in for the interview). You won’t be notified through email or whatsoever //like what I had assumed// so just remember to check it by yourself. (I only found out that I was called in for the interview on the interview day itself thanks to Lillian //ps: please click on the link to view her blog!! it’s really good hehe// 🙂 so please don’t be like me tq)
here you go^^^
Yup, that’s about it! Hope this helps 🙂
All the best and good luck for applying!! Bye bye
