The race for public scholarships has begun as soon as the results of the public exams have been announced. There are already 11,000 high-flying students who have applied for public scholarships to pursue their tertiary education overseas. More applications are expected to come in before the March 22 deadline.
However, the Public Services Department (PSD) only has 1,300 such scholarships to give out
. There is hope yet as the PSD will be offering another 5,000 scholarships
for studies in local universities.
