Hello, i just finish finish spm exam 2016 and one of my targets is to be a teacher either pure science teacher or a maths teacher as long as i will be supported to pursue my studies so i want to ask if there were scholarships for teaching courses either in malaysia or overseas? Please, thank you!
It is great that you want to be a teacher of science or math.
There are no specific scholarships for teaching courses. BUT there are lots of general scholarships. For instance:

– http://afterschool.my/scholarship/university-of-louisiana-fleur-de-lis-international-scholarship-usa/ (Overseas)
There more scholarships opening as we get closer to SPM results.
Also, keep in mind, there is the JPA and MARA scholarships AND PTPTN study loans.
The most important thing to keep in mind is which scholarships you qualify for. It is important that you get the right grades to get the scholarship.
If you have good results, try to make your options broader than just teaching. Maybe consider pure and applied science programmes.
I hope this helps.
Best of luck,
