“The application period for the Domestic Education Loan Scheme (Skim Pinjaman Pelajaran Dalam Negara) is open throughout the year.

“On the other hand, the consideration for scholarship under Sarawak Foundation Tun Taib Scholarship and Sarawak Tunku Abdul Rahman Scholarship Foundation is based on merit.

“The application period for these scholarships are within a certain duration of time only,” he said on Thursday (Aug 19).
