Tun Tan Cheng Lock Foundation / Scholarship: Application

There seems not to be much info on Tun Tan Cheng Lock Foundation (Scholarship) on the I'll try to post as much stuff I know about its application here. Just to help out the (many) clueless out there! :)

TTCLF seems to be very low profile as you can't find it being advertised in any newspapers or does it has its own website. I got to know that in order to get the application form, you'll need to WRITE to them with an enclosed self-addressed envelope to this address:

P.O. BOX 13615

Once you've got it, fill it up and send them back before the closing date. Some of you may ask, "Since they don't publish any notice anywhere, then how the hell would I know the closing date??? When should I send the letter asking for the form???" I don't know too....but I suggest that you do so immediately after STPM results are out! I believe the offer is open concurrently with pre-U results.

Here are the conditions and procedure for application:
1. Applicants should be Malaysian citizens.
2. Applicants should possess good academic qualification.
3. Tun Tan Cheng Lock Foundation Undergraduate Awards are for needy students only.
4. Only undergraduates / prospective undergraduates reading for a first degree are eligible to apply.
5. Applicants' course of study and University must be recognised by the Malaysian Government. This should be certified by a letter from the Public Services Department (Jabatan Perkhidmatan Awam), Malaysia.

I) All applications must be made on the official application forms of the Foundation. Completed forms should be returned to: (the above address)

II) Applicants should enclose certified copies of the following documents:
1. STPM certificates
2. School testimonials and school leaving certificates
3. Birth certificate
4. Parents' / Guardian's Income Tax Notice of Assessment. If parents' / guardian's income is not taxable, please submit other proofs of income such as EA Form (Form J)
5. Undergraduates should submit all results obtained in University / College including their latest results as soon as available.
6. Applicant's and siblings' NRIC. (as of year 2010)

III) Incomplete applications will be disqualified.

IV) All applications must be submitted before the closing date stipulated on the application forms. Late applications will not be considered.
Only shortlisted candidates will be notified for interview.

As of year 2010, TTCLF provides scholarship of RM 7000 per annum to students of various field (Yes....include Medicine and Dentistry). So, good luck to everyone who plans or had applied!! :)

PS: TTCLF may change the required documents in the, make sure you get the latest info on it before applying! :)
Oh....and the dateline for year 2010 application is 31st March 2010. (yeah I's tomorrow)

PPS: TTCLF Trustees' office is at Wisma Tun Sambanthan, Jalan Maharajalela, Kuala Lumpur. It is possible for you to go there straight away and apply on the spot with all your supporting documents. Once again, good luck!!!! XD

May i ask that Tun Tan Cheng Lock is scolarship or Loan?

Unknown said...

I can't give you an answer for that now cause I am still waiting for a reply from them. Apparently, all of my seniors who applied for it are granted scholarships! Somehow, printed on the application form, it says "Tun Tan Cheng Lock Scholarship / Loan".
So whether it is purely scholarship or loan to certain applicants, I really can't tell! Sorry.....

May I know what should we write to them regarding the scholarship? We need to write a formal letter right?

Hi Jiro, thank you for commenting.
The last time I wrote was a formal letter stating that I am interested in applying the scholarship. You would include a self-addressed envelope (with stamps on it, of course)together with your letter. The letter need not to be very long. It is just for them to send you the application form. Your empty envelope that is important! Not your letter!
Hope that answers your question..

Jiro said...

Thank you very much!!! That solves my problem.

I am not affiliated with Tun Tan Cheng Lock scholarship. This post is just to provide information to people who are finding ways to apply for it. And that was how I did it. If you want to know more bout the scholarship, I suggest you call the hotline yourself. :)
