KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 28 — Non-profit organisation Antarabudaya has launched 10 scholarships for local students who are interested in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths) subjects for a four-month intercultural programme.
The four-month programme will start with a 12-week virtual e-learning curriculum from their home country culminating with student-led social impact projects and presentations.
Upon completion of the online classes, participants will get to travel on a 4-week immersive experience to one of the six participating AFS countries: Brazil, China, Egypt, Europe, India or the USA to observe how nations utilise STEM skills to address sustainability issues.
Datin Yasmin Merican, Board Trustee for AFS International and Advisor to Antarabudaya Malaysia, encouraged local youths to send in their applications despite the tight deadlines set on January 8, 2023.
Applicants need to be Malaysian citizens, aged between 15- to 17-years-old (born between November 25, 2005 and March 25, 2008), and able to fully participate in both online and classroom classes during the programme.
Antarabudaya Malaysia is a non-profit volunteer-driven organisation focused on intercultural learning across communities and a member country of AFS Intercultural Programs.
