Wawasan Open University is providing a study grant for new potential students who will be pursuing their studies in the university. The WEF study grant is meant to provide an incentive for potential students who want to further their studies and life’s opportunities but find themselves under difficult financial circumstances for one reason or another. The idea is to offer a study grant to subsidize the cost of the students’ first term of studies so that those who are uncertain of their academic or other abilities to undertake the challenge of academic pursuits are not inhibited from trying for fear of the financial consequences of taking their ‘academic first steps’.
