Here is my idea on the scholarship portal (I'd moved this from the thread 'Introducing ReCom Wiki' to here because it seems inappropriate to post this under the section 'Rules, News and Info Kiosk').
When I'm seeking for info in recom for scholarships, I found that some of the pre-universities, undergraduate and postgraduate scholarships are all mixed up although they are under the same sponsor. For example Bank Negara provides different scholarship programs. So different scholarship seekers might have to use more time to flip through other info seem unrelated to them.
I suggest that we should further divide the scholarship portal into some subtopics to make ReCom Wiki more systematic, well-organized and to ease the search of information for different stages of scholarships seekers.
1. International scholarships
2. Local scholarships
I suggest to divide it based on the type of programme sponsored. So it can be divided into 3 subtopics, which are:
* Scholarships for Pre-University Study
(STPM, A-Level, Australian Matriculation etc.)
* Scholarships for Undergraduate/first degree courses
* Scholarships for Postgraduate Study
1. If there are several scholarship program under a same sponsor, for instance Bank Negara, then the title 'Bank Negara' will appear in all three categories. For the link 'bank negara' under pre-university category, there will be only infomation about the pre-university scholarship program, while only info about first degree scholarship program by bank negara under the subtopic 'undergraduate scholarship'. And so on.
2. There might be some vague boundary lines between different categories. For instance some scholarships cover the fees from pre-university study to degree course, such as JPA, Petronas, UEM and many others. So which category should we put them? Or we just list it under the title of 'Others' or 'General'?
These are just some rough, brief ideas of mine.
Are those suggestions applicable and useful? Or they sound funny and unnecessary? Any comments? Do correct me if there is any mistakes.
