He said the offer would help the students pursue their post-graduate studies in local universities, should they decide to do so. 

“In 2011, I announced at the launch of the 1 Malaysia Indian Students Movement that more opportunities for funding would be given to first-class honours Indian undergraduates at public universities to pursue their Masters and PhDs at IPTAs. 

“Today... I would like to announce that the government will ensure that the top 100 Indian students who achieve a first-class degree will be given a full fees scholarship,” Datuk Seri Najib Razak said at SMJ(T) Vivekananda here. 

He added that the federal scholarships will be disbursed in time for the 2012 intake.
