Using Scholarships as Tools for Development

Scholarships, highly-coveted by students and their parents, are often seen as a gateway for individuals to receive world class education which might otherwise be beyond their means. But on a national scale, scholarships are also used as a tool to develop a nation by educating its people. We discuss how scholarships came to be prominent in Malaysia as well as why sponsoring students to go abroad might not be sustainable for the country’s future.
