Education Ministry has reopened applications for scholarships to train school principals.

Education Ministry had opened applications for 20 scholarships for Master’s in School Administration/Education Management from Malaysia in November last year.

The ministry has now reopened applications for six scholarship spots following a shortage in qualified candidates.

Education Ministry said that the applicants selected will have their course fees covered, and receive an allowance equal to their salary, as well as a two-way ticket.

Interested candidates have been instructed to email their application forms, along with other relevant documents to [email protected].

Selected candidates will be bonded to work at a government school for a specific period of time.

Applications will close at 02:00 pm on Tuesday, February 22.

In order to be eligible for the scholarships, candidates must have a Bachelor's Degree in teaching or education, and at least five years of experience as a teacher.

If the candidate is someone who has taken out student loan from the Education Ministry in the past, he/she must be someone who has not defaulted and has been paying repaying the loan in accordance with the repayment schedule.

Candidates who have completed a Master's Degree-level course in school administration or education management will be disqualified.
