This initiative inspired by YB Tan Sri Idris Jusoh, Chairman of FELDA aims to increase digital preparedness in line with Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR4.0) by exposing reality and practicality in order to produce excellent human capital ready to embrace the challenges in the digitalization era.

The public-private strategic collaboration between these two organisations will enable an initial group of 13 outstanding students consisting of grandchildren of settlers and children of FELDA Group employees, including FGV, to pursue study programmes up to the Bachelor’s Degree level. These 13 students are among 239 applicants who applied for this scholarship since it opened on 16 June 2022.
This programme valued at RM1.5 million in total, includes Academic Studies Program, Intensive English Program (IEP), Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), foreign language classes (Korean language), accommodation fees, and student allowance for 4 years and 6 months.
Through this strategic collaboration, YB Tan Sri Idris Jusoh reinforces FELDA’s commitment to raising educational standards and developing the new generation of FELDA in order to enhance the social mobility of FELDA’s community as a whole.f
“With the signing of this MoU, I am confident that the educational aspirations of the new generation of FELDA will be empowered, as will digital mastery, which will be the driver of a more advanced future.”
He also added, “We are delighted to be able to collaborate with a leading higher education institution like APU to lead a joint programme in the field of technology. This move will serve as inspiration and motivation for the new generation of FELDA to continue to innovate and achieve world class success after they graduate and become the force to achieve FELDA’s aspiration to propel itself in the Fortune 500 league,” he explained.
At the same time, Datuk Parmjit Singh thanked FELDA, FGV, and Yayasan FELDA for their confidence and foresight in establishing collaboration in education and digital technology.
“We look forward to the opportunity of transforming their bright future, highly motivated young students selected to join this programme, into highly competent, employable and future-proof graduates in their chosen technology specialization.
“We are confident that through this collaboration, these students will not only be competitive locally but will also develop high levels of global awareness and competitiveness by studying in APU with a highly multicultural learning environment, which includes more than 130 countries on campus,” he said.
