Overview

Penang Future Foundation (“PFF”) started in 2015 as the Penang State Government’s initiative to aid outstanding and deserving Malaysian youths to pursue tertiary studies in public/private universities in Malaysia. With valuable contribution from the private sector and donors, especially the Penang Turf Club who recognize the importance of education and the need to retain local talents, PFF has awarded approximately 511 scholarships over the last 5 years. Selected scholars come from a diverse range of backgrounds and are enrolled in fields of Science*, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Accountancy and Finance (*Exclude Medicine).

Prospective students may apply to be either a ‘PFF Penang Scholar’ or ‘PFF Mutiara Scholar’. Interested candidates are advised to check the eligibility requirements for each category. Both categories have different eligibility criteria based on, among others, candidates’ financial background and scholastic record.
