Children of fishermen, night market traders get Petronas edu sponsorship


Dateline 2019-07-01, Daily Express:

” I dream of a stable career to help my family finances so that my father does not have to be a night market trader after this,” said 18-year-old Wan Muhammad Nur Hisyam Wan Zakaria.

Wan Muhammad Nur Hisyam, who will continue his studies in Australia, is grateful that by being selected with 39 other students from Terengganu for this year’s Petronas Education Sponsorship Programme (PESP) has kept his dream alive.

The former Batu Rakit Integrated Boarding School student, who scored 11 A’s in the 2018 Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) examination, has received a scholarship worth about RM700,000 from Petronas for five years to further his studies in chemical engineering.

“I am very grateful for this opportunity because I can continue my studies without burdening my parents financially as it will be financed by Petronas. I am determined to make full use of this opportunity in order to have a brighter future,” he said.
