Some of the fields studied by the students include qira’at, medicine, pharmacy, engineering, and education.
Abdul Aziz said during an online ceremony attended by the 2021 scholarship beneficiaries on August 24, “It’s difficult to get this sponsorship; students have to go through a selection process that includes academic performance and interviews. Those who succeed are certainly the cream of the crop.”
He stated that SPH was created in 2012 and so far has awarded RM62mil in scholarships to 1,177 students.
