Starting 2019, the Melaka State Government through the Melaka State Education Trust Fund (TAPEM) invites Melaka children to apply for the Melaka State Government Islamic Studies Scholarship to further their studies in Islamic studies in Egypt, Jordan, Morocco and Indonesia.

These borrowers are offered to students who have been admitted to Public and Private Institutions of Higher Learning that are listed in the sponsorship of the Melaka State Education Trust Fund (TAPEM) only.

This financial aid is to help out those who have successfully entered university. For those furthering their diploma studies, they are entitled to receive RM300, meanwhile those who are furthering their degree, master and PhD are eligible to receive RM400.

 The condition for the application is simple, which is to accept the offer of admission to the designated university/institution of higher learning be it public or private university. There is no further info regarding the repayment of loan; however if the loan is from the state government, it is safe to assume that there are no interest charges.

Negeri Sembilan also offers education loans but they did not put any information about this loan except to inform that for 2019, the Education Loan has been coordinated with PTPTN. In this regard, Yayasan Negeri Sembilan has been asked to give priority to PTPTN and applicants are advised to apply for a PTPTN loan first.

Only applicants who fail to get a PTPTN loan are eligible to apply for a Negeri Sembilan Foundation loan and need to submit a rejection letter from PTPTN as proof. Application forms can be picked up directly at the Yayasan Negeri Sembilan office at the Yayasan Negeri building, jalan Yam Tuan Seremban, Negeri Sembilan.
