Maxis eKelas’ popular Anugerah Gemilang, a student grant scheme, is back once again to motivate and inspire students to achieve their academic goals by rewarding those who have shown progress in their grades at school. Targeted to Form 1 to Form 5 students, Anugerah Gemilang will be rewarding cash grants for up to 100 students, based on strict evaluation criteria and assessment. To qualify for the award, students must achieve a minimum of one grade improvement in two or all three of the subjects taught in eKelas, which are English, Science and Mathematics. Eligible students can submit their final school exam results for the previous and current year which entitles them to receive RM600 and RM1,200 for those improvements respectively, which will then be deposited into the students’ National Education Savings Scheme (Skim Simpanan Pendidikan Nasional) accounts.
“We are proud to see the continued growth of eKelas over the years and Anugerah Gemilang is a popular and key highlight of the programme and a great incentive for students to do well in the three subjects. We have received encouraging response in submissions in the past, and we urge more students to register for eKelas now and take the first step by completing the assessment quizzes on the portal,” - Mariam Bevi Batcha, Chief Corporate Affairs Officer, Maxis
As a pre-requisite, students must complete pre- and post-assessment quizzes on the eKelas portal from now to 31 December to qualify for the award. They will then need to submit their post-assessment results and applications for Anugerah Gemilang from 1 March until 30 April 2023.
