The annual award ceremony for the Japanese Government (Monbukagakusho: MEXT) Scholarships was held at the Japanese Ambassador’s Residence in Kuala Lumpur on 25th March 2014. This year, 28 Malaysian students were awarded the Japanese Government Scholarships to further study in Japan. Of the 28 students, 5 received scholarships for undergraduate studies while the other 23 are postgraduate. Most of them will depart to Japan this coming April.
Japanese Ambassador, H.E. Dr. Makio Miyagawa, congratulated all 28 scholarship grantees. In his speech, Ambassador Dr. Miyagawa asked the scholarship grantees to actively promote Malaysian culture while trying to understand Japanese culture during their studies. He also hopes that the efforts of the scholarship grantees would not stop at Japan-Malaysia friendship and that they would eventually become the driving force to create a new Asia.
Datin Dr. Rosslina Ahmad Mokhtar, Senior Deputy Director from the Public Service Department thanked the Japanese Government for providing scholarships to Malaysians in her speech. She also urged the students to learn knowledge and technology, and hopes that they will contribute to the development of the Malaysian economy upon graduation.
Mr. Yeo Eng Wah, Vice President of the Japan Graduates’ Association of Malaysia (JAGAM) urged the students to study hard, observe Japanese culture and enjoy life in Japan. He also asked the students to become a member of JAGAM after returning to Malaysia, and work together to become the bridge between Japan and Malaysia.
Mr. Leong Zi Ping, representative of the Japanese Government scholarship grantees 2014, expressed his gratitude to the Japanese Government for the scholarship award, as well as families, friends and fellow scholars who supported him during the process.
