Study is not all about SCHOLARSHIP
As a teacher, I always advise my students to study hard and get a good grades so that they have a higher chances to get scholarship especially students from the poor background. I used this scholarship reward to motivate students to study diligently. At least, these students have goal and objective in pursuing studies. But, what happening now is they are losing hope. The students came and asked me these type of questions:-
What's the point I study so hard but cannot get a JPA scholarship?
Why my country treat me like second class citizen as I loved my country?
How I am going to answer them?..... I only can advise them to try other country's sponsor scholarship such as Singapore's Asian Scholarship. Study is to get knowledge but it is added bonus if you can get a scholarship. My dear students, do not give up in pursuing studies. With knowledges you gained, you are able to solve various difficulties, to challenge yourself to a greater height, and to live in a meaningful way. Do not let yourself in despair mood just because you cannot get scholarship. Continue your effort in pursuing your dream. God will always help those who are righteous and truthful. If you cannot get a scholarship here, God will open another door for you. HE will give you a surprise for those who truly seek HIS WAY.
