Bitsmedia forms a 5-year agreement with local self-help group Yayasan MENDAKI to fund scholarships for students in local universities, with priority given to those in the STEM field.
A total of 10 Malay/Muslim students would benefit from this scholarship twice a year, from 2022 to 2026. Each scholarship is valued at SGD $5,000.
“At the core of the Muslim Pro brand is our commitment to empowering Muslims through technology,” says Fara Abdullah, Co-CEO of Bitsmedia and Muslim Pro.
Fara also added, “We want to encourage youths to explore a sector that is constantly thriving with innovations and limitless possibilities. It all begins with education and that a person’s financial limitations should not be a roadblock to achieving one’s ambitions and aspirations. I hope this would inspire many more students to achieve greater heights in the areas of STEM.”
Mdm Zuraidah Abdullah, Chief Executive Officer of MENDAKI says, “MENDAKI is delighted to partner Bitsmedia and establish a new scholarship to support Malay/Muslim students who are studying in STEM fields. We hope more like-minded corporate partners in emerging and growth sectors will continue to work with MENDAKI to help our students to pursue their studies and achieve their dream”.
This scholarship is Bitsmedia’s first to fund since its inception in 2009.
