A brief summary of our 2014 YLA programme
SCHOLARSTories (YLA 2014 Winning Team)
Students keen on pursuing further education often face difficulties in applying for scholarships. Help to prepare for scholarship applications is sought endlessly; sometimes to no avail. But fret no more! Team SCHOLARSTories from YLA 2014 became the pioneer to bridge this gap by launching a website to help students to apply scholarships.
Team SCHOLARSTories have now connected many bright minds around the country by establishing the foundation of sharing past experiences, interview tips and success stories between applicants and successful scholars. With this website, students are now also able to distinguish between the differences of various scholarships and its requirements. Team SCHOLARSTories have successfully delivered true impact to the community by being voted the “Malaysian Startup of the Year” by Vulcan Post.
A key motivating factor for winning team was rather a simple quote:-
“Be the change you wish to see in the world”
Congratulations Team SCHOLARSTories!
