CollegeLAH

CollegeLAH is a website by the students for the students, featuring the honest story of applications and university life as told by Malaysians. It’s a non-profit social project to help Malaysian students to achieve their higher-education dreams and inspire them to reach their full potential. 

Bank Negara Kijang Emas Scholarship

Alicia Kijang Emas

Hello everyone! I’m Alicia, currently reading Law in the University of Cambridge. I was the first undergraduate student to receive the Kijang Emas scholarship from Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM), and I’ll be sharing my experiences with you today.

First, a little bit about BNM and the scholarship itself! It’s the Malaysian central bank, and is dedicated to promoting sustainable growth in Malaysia. They strongly believe in developing human capital, and BNM’s Scholarship Programme aims at nurturing young talent. I was blessed enough to receive the Kijang Emas scholarship, which is a full scholarship. Students who are awarded this particular scholarship are not bonded to BNM, and are called to contribute back to Malaysia instead. Post-SPM students who receive this also have the option to select any course in any top university. BNM also offers their scholars the opportunity to participate in internships, usually during the summer. The details of the internships depend on the particular department, but all offer great opportunities to learn.

Securing the scholarship

My application experience was a little different, as I originally applied for the normal undergraduate scholarship, but was subsequently awarded the Kijang Emas scholarship. So, I will focus instead on the general content rather than the format of my assessment. If you would like to read about the usual procedures, you can read some of the other articles on CollegeLAH by BNM scholars .

During my interview, I was generally asked about my interest in my course (Law), and how I plan to cope with studying in the United Kingdom. At this stage, it is crucial to demonstrate a keep interest in your subject, as they want students who are passionate and who really love their subject.

Among the interesting questions I was asked was whether I think it is true that some people are simply born smarter than others. My response was that we can’t control the circumstances that we are born into. Some may come into families that are better suited to expose them to the world at an early age, thus making them “smarter,” but it is up to us to make the best of what we are given.

I was also asked questions like how I handle criticism. To this, I responded that I view it objectively, and absolutely welcome it if it comes with good reason. I related this to my homework (my A Level subjects were very essay-based) to say how I use criticism to improve the quality of my work.

Intellectually, if you are still studying when you apply, you should definitely pay extra attention to your revision, and think not just about how to score in the exam, but the additional skills they provide you with as a whole (Literature, for example, hones in on analytical skills). They may very well ask what your favorite subject in college (or secondary school) is, and you should be prepared to answer this question. Read through any essays you may have submitted with your application, and reflect on some of your major extra-curricular activities, determining what qualities you have gained from them. For example, how has participating in debate helped you grow? Is it relevant to your chosen course? Has it made your more eloquent and confident? Try to put a value to everything (relevant!) that you have done, and don’t just state the obvious.

In terms of your state of mind, try not to think too much. Whilst you definitely should prepare as much as you can, don’t stress yourself out. There is only so much that you can do, and they won’t expect you to know everything anyway. Remember that there is such a thing as over-preparing! Whilst you should have the general gist of your points, don’t memorise and reproduce your answers – be as natural as you can, and show your sincerity. Once your application process is over, put it aside, and focus on what you have at hand. Don’t agonise over any mistakes you may have made (unless you know how you can improve and still have upcoming assessments). Last but certainly not least, pray very hard, and leave the rest to God!

Applying for this scholarship and receiving it has definitely affected me greatly. The application process itself taught me a lot, and I value what I learned from my interview panel during the time I spent with them too. I also got to make friends with my fellow applicants, who are all brilliant in their own right, and I hope we get to meet again in the future.

Receiving the Kijang Emas scholarship has opened my eyes to see that it is possible, and that working hard really does pay off. It has been an invaluable experience, and I am truly grateful for this opportunity.

BASE Initiative

Sneak peak of the kijang., don't miss out, this page is being built. sorry for the inconvenience..

The Bank Negara Malaysia Kijang Scholarship is arguably one of the most selective scholarship programmes that is available for post-SPM students in Malaysia. Founded under Tun Ismail Mohd Ali (the Second Governor of BNM), it aims to transform the Central Bank into a knowledge-based organization and serves as a perpetuating force of recruitment for the Central Bank with today’s 30% of all employees in BNM being ex-scholars.

I find the Kijang Scholarship to be one of the most complex yet simple scholarship programmes that I`ve been through in my experience applying to about 12 of them post-SPM. It only asks us about the essay, what course we intend to take (two options) and then some documents to be handed in to the Scholarship Section of BNM.

Why is it complex?

Well, the Scholarship asked us to write a 500-word essay on certain areas (personal goals, challenges etc) and to fit everything into a 500-word essay was quite a monumental task. It requires rigorous proof-reading and multiple drafts in order to fit an abundance of information into one document.

The interview is also not your typical tell-me-about-yourself interview, it consists of two sessions, a group and an individual interview. During our year, we had to do a case study on a plastic product and decide on which product was the best fit for the company. Coming from a pure-Sastera background, I had the advantage of some business tricks from taking Perniagaan in Form 5. But the challenge was trying to coordinate and discuss with people you've just met about five minutes earlier in the waiting room at Microsoft Teams.

For the individual interview, it was one of the toughest I`ve been through and at that point I`ve been through numerous other scholarship interviews like YK, Shell, JPA etc.. My assessors (from various departments of the Bank ranging from the Director of the Monetary Policy Department to the Manager of BNM’s Innovation Labs) were tough and critical of every word I said. I remembered at one point I almost lost my cool as one of the assessors were ridiculing my past internship experience but all in all, the pressure and the dissection from the interview felt super satisfying if you managed to navigate through it well.

Why is it simple?

The Kijang Scholarship has in previous years, never used any online assessments like CUBIKS or Logiks (which you will find quite often with other major scholarships like PNB, PESP and YK). So, if you’re a person who sucks at math, spatial reasoning (like me lol) or those english comprehension stuff, the Kijang Scholarship might be just the right one for you. I assume the reasoning behind this implementation was an online assessment is a bit hard to some students especially those who lack access to a stable internet connection.

Other than that, the Kijang Scholarship is super straightforward. There’s a few courses you can choose from (due to the Bank’s mandate as the Central Bank of this country) and there might be a slight chance you might get your second option. So, you don't need to worry that much about what courses you want to take as there’s only about nine of them.

Advice from a Kijang Scholar to a hopeful applicant?

Honesty is the best policy. If you’re really good at faking it till you make it then you do you, but I’ve always believed that if you’re truthful to yourself and to the assessors it`ll be worthwhile.

Be a team player. The Bank (and most other scholarship bodies) are looking for individuals that are going to take on the mantle in the next generation. They want people who can work in a collective environment, striving for a common goal. Therefore, during the interview, respect other people’s views, don't talk until they’ve finished talking, don’t drag other people down to bring yourself up, interject with respect. Essentially, practice reciprocity.

Keep an open mind and be mindful. You’ve reached this far, you`ve qualified to apply for the Kijang Scholarship, you’re going to attend the interview. Not many people have this privilege as much as you. Later on during the interview you’re going to meet the best and the brightest of this country, straight A+ kids, best students of a renowned school, just plain old brilliant people. Don’t let this demotivate you just because you come from a public school or you talk less than them. You and them are in an even-playing field, equals and there are no firsts amongst yourselves. So what I can say is just try your best and always believe that your best is good enough.

Whatever it is, do not limit yourself to only one scholarship. Evenly spread your options towards multitudes of them post-SPM. Take into account your goals in the future as scholarship bodies might sponsor you for your education but the bond that it entails can decide your life for the next 10-15 years. But in the end, there’s more to ourselves than being a “Kijang Scholar” or any other scholars as a matter of fact. A scholarship is not a be all and end all thing in your journey post-SPM. I wish you all the very best of luck. May the force be with you.

Economics and Bank Negara Malaysia - Max, BNM Scholar

Updated: Jun 19, 2022

kijang scholarship essay

Hey there! For this particular post, I wish to share my experience in being a part of Bank

Negara Malaysia's Kijang Scholarship 2021 application process. This is a blog that I wish

I found back when I was applying for the Kijang Scholarship, I truly hope that this blog

would be able to give you a better insight on how to ace not only this scholarship's

application process, but other scholarships as well.

The Kijang Scholarship 2021 application process was held online from the comfort of my

What should you do before the scholarship application portal opens:

Before diving into the scholarship's application process, I wish to highlight that having

ample preparation beforehand is just as important. So, what exactly is this 'preparation

beforehand'?

Before applying for the Kijang Scholarship (it's most likely going to be after you receive

your SPM results), take note of when the application process will begin. This doesn't only

apply to the Kijang Scholarship but others as well, you want to have a list of scholarships

and dates of when the application portals open and close. This way, you won't have to

worry about missing out on any scholarship opportunities.

Next, I suggest having all your academics and co-curricular certificates arranged neatly in

a folder. Another tip is to arrange them based on the level of achievement. For instance,

you could arrange your school certificates first and then proceed on with state-level,

national-level and international-level certificates. Trust me this will save you so a lot of

time as compared to scrambling around your room looking for your certificates later on.

The best time to start doing this is NOW!

THE FIRST STAGE:

Alright, let's get straight into the first stage! For the first stage, it is fairly straightforward,

you will first have to fill in an application form (personal details, family details, SPM

grades, co-curricular activities et cetera). Moving on, there is a 500-word essay for you to

Based on my experience, the essay requires you to write about why you want to pursue

a particular course, how you can contribute to the bank and country by pursuing in

that course, what are your career aspirations, and why you deserve the scholarship.

I'll admit that it was fairly difficult for me to come out with good ideas for the essay in

the beginning. Nonetheless, I made good use of the internet to do research on the courses

I was applying for and did a lot of self-reflecting. Here are some of my do's and don'ts for

writing the essay (take it with a grain of salt).

● Begin drafting without thinking too much of the initial quality of your essay

● Begin drafting as early as possible to have enough time to polish up your

essay/prepare new drafts

● Talk more about your personal qualities and experiences (how it shaped you into a

better person)

● Research on the courses you are looking forward to pursuing, i.e., Computer

Science, Actuarial Science, Accounting & Finance, and Economics

● Ask your friends and family for feedback on your essay

● Read up on BNM's roles and objectives

● Make the essay flow well and pleasant to read

● Type your drafts on a third party application (e.g., Microsoft Word, Google Docs)

and copy-paste your final draft in the application portal when you're ready

● Length of essay should be around 500 words

● Give your maximum effort

DON'TS:

● Copy others' essay (plagiarism is a big NO)

● Rush your essay

● Be stubborn when others give you opinions (this was me haha but I learnt how to

solicit feedback)

● Send in your essay without proofreading

● Forget the main question of the essay

After completing this stage, you'll just have to wait patiently. Remember to check your

emails everyday! Additionally, you'll receive an email to send some necessary documents

to BNM so take note of this!

THE SECOND STAGE (Kijang Academy Pre-Assessment):

Congratulations! You have been invited to join Kijang Academy Pre-Assessment stage!

First up, Psychometric Assessment and Video Submission. Oh, I forgot to mention that

there's no elimination phase for this stage, so don't you worry! Everyone will eventually

be shortlisted for Kijang Academy Assessment Day so just solely focus on the

psychometric assessment and video submission.

Psychometric Assessment

There's not too much to worry about for this assessment, you'll just have to answer a set

of questions based on your personality. Do note that these questions need to be answered

based on how much you disagree or agree.

However, I wouldn't say that this is a 'no right or wrong answer' assessment. No, I'm not

telling you to lie, in fact, you should be hundred percent truthful. But, do ensure that you

are consistent with the answers.

You see, most of these questions are sort of repetitive in a way. Same questions can be

asked differently. If you're inconsistent with your answers, you'll come out as indecisive

or dishonest.

Here's an example of the psychometric assessment question:

"I like to be the centre of attention among my teammates"

"I like to be the main focus in a team"

I think we can all agree that both statements above are looking for the same answer but

they are asked differently. So if you chose 'disagree' for the first statement, they might

expect you to choose the same answer for the second statement. Don't stress yourself out

to select the exact same answer every time but do note that they are looking for

consistency in your answers. I recommend writing down the questions and answers while

answering the questions so you don't forget your previous responses.

In addition, try not to respond with 'strongly disagree' or 'strongly agree' too often.

Instead, go with 'disagree' or 'agree'.

Video Submission

For the video submission, you are required to film a video based on one of the three

topics given. In my case, I recorded a video on the topic 'Be better or be the best. Which

describes you closest?'. My advice for you is to be as creative as you can with your video

editing and speak confidently into your phone/camera. Be well-prepared and put in as

much effort as you can! Be yourself and you can stand out among the other candidates!

THE FINAL STAGE (Kijang Academy Assessment Day):

Alright, you have made it through all the previous stages and here you are, looking at the

assessment day email sent by BNM! For the assessment day, there are a total of three

assessments.

1. Ice-breaking stage

2. Group case study

3. Individual interview

Ice-breaking stage

In all honesty, the ice-breaking stage was really fun! We had to select a funny picture as

our virtual background (in Microsoft Teams) and explain why we chose that picture. This

stage was merely for candidates to get to know each other better and reduce the tension in

the group call. The assessors were also really friendly so just be yourself and calm down,

you're going to have a great time!

Group case study

This year's case study was to come out with a strategy to help out a neighbouring ASEAN

country in carrying out their COVID-19 vaccination programme (the topic varies year by

year). I'm not entirely sure how many candidates were assigned to a single group but for

my case, I was assigned to a group of 6 candidates - altogether 7 candidates including me.

There were three assessors for the case study.

For the case study assessment, it is important for you to engage in discussions and

encourage others to give out their opinions. Similarly, you should give out your views

and never forget to solicit feedback open-mindedly from others. This way, your group

will be able to come out with an output/solution which everyone can concur to.

When someone else is speaking, listen closely to their points and speak whenever

necessary. Do not tell the other candidates that their points are irrelevant or wrong as this

might cause them to have a negative perception towards you (respect others' opinions ok).

Under a spirit of approval, your team is going to do better and put forth greater effort than

when under a spirit of criticism.

Have a pen, paper, and calculator prepared to write down any information or calculations.

However, do note that there is a time limit, this is where you should do your best in

displaying good time management skills along with your group members. My group

managed to come out with a rather successful COVID-19 vaccination plan although we

did exceed the time limit given by 10 minutes. Nonetheless, we were glad to see that the

assessors were happy with our final presentation.

Having participated in this case study assessment, I think the main takeaway is to work

out a fine balance between getting your points across clearly and listening effectively.

Remember, your main goal is not to dominate the discussion and impress the assessors

but to do your best in contributing to the discussion while respecting the other candidates.

Relax, breathe and be yourself.

Individual Interview

So you've completed the case study assessment and now it's time for the individual

interview! In my experience, the assessors were really friendly and they wanted to know

more about me, making the individual interview my favourite part of Kijang Academy. I

was interviewed by three interviewers - two of them whom I had already met in the case

study session.

Keep on reading if you want to know my tip for letting the interviewers like you more!

Here are some of the questions I was asked during the individual interview:

1. Could you tell us more about your background?

2. What was the spark that ignited you to study hard and achieve good grades? (I

mentioned that I struggled academically during my lower secondary education.)

3. Tell us about an experience when you led a team.

4. What are some of the challenges you faced in school and how did you overcome

5. What do you know about Bank Negara?

6. What if others don’t listen to your idea even if you know your idea is better?

7. Why did you put Computer Science as your first option and Economics as your

second option?

8. What is it that you want to achieve in life?

9. Which country do you want to study in and why? Will you come back and serve

the country? Do you acknowledge that you have to serve a bond?

Here are some of the advice for the individual interview:

● Be yourself and answer the questions honestly.

● Do some research on BNM's official website.

● Do research on the courses you are applying for.

● Reread your application essay.

● Prepare for 'tell me about yourself' question.

● Hold a pen while speaking (it helps with self-confidence).

● Ask questions at the end of the interview (I asked about job opportunities in

BNM's departments and the scholars' development programmes)

● Here's my secret tip to really let the interviewers like you , remember to

mention their NAMES (Remember that a person’s name is the most important

thing to them. Remember it, call them. If their names are hard to get, ask them to

repeat/ask them to spell it out.)

● Practise speaking to yourself in front of the mirror or record yourself speaking.

● Practise using strong and confident hand gestures when talking into the camera.

All in all, I believe you will be able to do well in your individual interview as long as you

speak confidently and elaborate more on your personal experiences. Do note that you

should be honest when you truly don't understand something but do mention that you will

do more research on it to understand better. BNM appreciates honest and enthusiastic

SCHOLARSHIP OFFER STAGE:

I waited patiently for 6 days before getting a scholarship offer email from BNM. I am

proud to say that I am now part of the BNM's scholars' family. I hope this blog will help

you in applying for BNM's Kijang Scholarship. All the best!

kijang scholarship essay

Assalam, May I know have you passed the interview and got the scholarship?

kijang scholarship essay

I managed to proceed to the last stage of the interview but unfortunately, I didn't get the scholarship. In fact, only 3 candidates were selected and they are currently doing their study in Kolej Tuanku Jaa'far. Meanwhile, I am doing my medicine study under JPA scholarship.

may i know if your flight ticekts to the 3 days 2 nights programme were subsidised by bnm?

I travelled to Sasana Kijang from Melaka by car so my travelling expenditure was not covered. However, I was acknowledged that if you're from outside semenanjung, the flight ticket wasn't covered as well. You should inquire them about it through their office number tho.

Do we need to perform really excellent in gerko and participate for some activities until highest level? What if i do active in sports but its only at school level?

I'm not the person in charge for the selection but as one of the person who was qualified for the interview, I think your academic results and your application essay are the important part. Nevertheless, you still have to come up with cocurriculum participations although it might doesnt matter about the level of participation.

How much is your gerko score before?

It was 90% but fret not, two of my friends got lower than 80% but they still excelled the interview.

How long we need to wait for calling or messaging from bnm about interview for Kijang Emas??

I couldn't exactly remember how long I waited but it was probably 2 weeks after the due date of application.

Hi hello, can you explain to me briefly on what I have to write in the essay? I am freaking out so much about the essay as it will be assessed very thoroughly. Thank you in advance :))

Hi and hello, Syakir. If I'm not mistaken, there is a word limit around 300 right? I truly believe that every word has to be briefly meaningful and they have to come sincerely from yourself in order to catch their attention. Besides, they'll even ask you again on what you've wrote if you manage to get to the final stage. I remembered writing 1. The reasons why I wanted to do medicine, 2. My plans in medicine field (eg. doing cardiology as sub-specialization), 3. Where and why 4. What makes me the person that they should choose, 5. How I can contribute back. I hope these helps!

I acknowledge my feelings.

I a cknowledge  my feelings. I’m not going to hide it anymore. I’m mad. I’m sad. I’m happy. At this age, I really don’t care the way I prese...

what's on my mind~

Tag: kijang, my kijang scholarship experience.

hi. in this post i’ll be talking about my experience with Kijang Scholarship application as I had gone through it and was offered to read Economics at UK. there were reasons I didn’t accept the offer but nevertheless the experience itself is what i cherish. i might go a bit overboard with this post as this application process and the IV was the best one I had attended.

P/S: shoutout to Khat and his friends for their massive help during my scholarship application process, they helped a lot in proofreading my essay and preparing me for interviews 🙂

Part 1: Application Process

Just like any applications, the first part is always filling up the form with relevant informations. One tip that I can give here if you are planning to apply to a lot of scholarships is to:

  • Personally, I use Notion to keep track of the progress I have made with each application; however, Notion can be quite hard to use if you are a first-timer, for which I suggest you to use any app you prefer like Google Sheets, Reminder or even Notes app
  • be sure to check out Telegram Groups like Biasiswa Malaysia, or maybe resources on Instagram like Closing The Gap and many more. Or perhaps, you can just search at the website of your preferred scholarship providers for informations
  • This is important, as there are a lot of information these organisations need like for example, MARA even asks your parents old IC number so make sure to have the informations at hand when you are filling in the form
  • Some application also require you to have a passport picture like my Kijang Scholarship application so make sure to read through the requirements to avoid taking redundant pictures

This is important, because when you do not organise your applications, you can miss deadlines for submission which inevitably lose yourself an opportunity.

The most dreaded part for most of my friends were the essay, which was about 500 words long. My essay (year 2022) title is somewhere along the lines of making an email draft talking about career aspirations and also how you field of study can contribute to the Nation and Bank. For the essay, the most important part is to be honest, do not lie in any part of the essay as it will be used during the interview session. However, what you can do is to emphasise on the key points of your achievements and your true passion. For example, I applied to further in Economics, although it is not my main interest, but I still had interest in it mainly due to my debating experience. With this, I emphasised how debating led me to my interest in debate. Furthermore, I think you should have people read your essay to ensure that unnoticeable mistakes can be detected. The more people who read your essay, the better. Of course, not all comments should be taken into account and in the end it’s your choice.

Part 2: Kijang Academy – the best part of this application!

I was shocked when I get the email stating that I was chosen to attend the Kijang Academy since it’s the part I’ve been waiting for. The reason why is because a lot of people whom have shared their experiences told that the academy or the assessment itself doesn’t feel like one, especially during group discussions, although I have to disagree with them… So here is my experience in chronological order to make it easier.

Day 0: arrival to the accomodation

after we had checked in to our rooms, we went to Lanai Kijang to have dinner before we were escorted to the hall there for briefing session. in this session, you will be divided into groups and this is when you’ll meet you facilitator. you will also had to discuss on what your group name will be and also you have to decide on what is your group’s signature pose. it was fun, but nervous at the same time since you are assessed at this point of time already. you have to try break the ice and try to socialise as much as possible.

fun tip: from what i observed, assessors have yellow slip with your picture on it, hence be more alert when there’s people with yellow slip near you and yes. you will be assessed during all discussions, IV and preparation time with your team mates.

the day starts with some breakfast (omg the nasi lemak damn good like i wanna refill but im nervous as hell) and after that, you will regroup again before moving onto the first task, which was the group pitching session. we were tasked with some task (im not sure whether or not i am able to spill the specifics so i’ll try to describe it as general as possible) where we had to work to bring a solution to be presented. we were brought to a meeting room with multiple tables and each group will be sat at each. then, as soon as you start the discussion and all, there will be the panels that will observe you (they are not discreet at all) and they might approach you to ask questions and all, as i write this, i am reminded of the masterchef where the judges would go down to the contestants and ask them what they’re doing, and i think it’s similar to that.

the important part for this session: be naturally good. i don’t mean that you just have to be yourself, be the best version of yourself. just like your essays where you kinda inflate the achievements and all, this is the time to show the best side of you. be outspoken, be thoughtful and be brave in whatever you do, and don’t be scared. there will be times where you feel intimidated but trust me, at that point, everyone is the same.

next, the second group session is a business pitching session. you will have to prepare a presentation to the “CEO” (facilitators cum judges) on the solution to the problem given. honestly, this session was the hardest one i guess? since they want to see your resilience when under pressure because honestly none of us had any idea on how to solve the problem. we also had some miscommunications which led to us being ‘poked’ and that issue became our achilles heel.

my tip: stay resilient. they will always find any problem to poke you with. and you will actually feel the friendly vibe in the room (they were REALLY friendly, just not in this session) slowly dissipate as everyone kept quiet, trying to come out with an answer. what i suggest you to do for you to stand out is to reaffirm anything anyone has said. like what i did was, i rechecked what the mistake was and i apologise to the CEO and tell them there has been some miscalculation. i also tried my best to answer when they repeatedly asked me on the problem. at that point, honestly i felt really humiliated, but the session must go on. maybe if you want, you can go and search on what a business proposal session looks like and get a glimpse on how to do it. this session is also quite similar to Khazanah’s Third Stage group assessment.

lastly, the dreaded session has come, the individual IV. i think i was the second last person for this session so the waiting time was not the best part. but then as soon as i sat down, i did the usuals, introduce myself and all, the atmosphere got better. i had a good laugh with the interviewers especially the economics interviewer, which i had to admit, maybe he’s tired too.

tip: as usual, prepare for common questions and try to research on what BNM really is. it’s okay if you dont have prior knowledge on the course ur applying but in the end what they want to see is your passion. be your best self and try to be not to upright, and chill a bit. there will always be qna session in the end and try to ask as many questions as possible, and they are very willing to answer since BNM is quite a secret institution not known by many.

to conclude, honestly, i didnt expect that i would actually offered to read economics with BNM, but i guess i showed a bit too much passion that day. i also applied for BNM for this experience but it’s all up to you. honestly, i also felt bad that i had to reject their offer because they dont take second intakes, but then everything happened for a reason.

p/s: take A LOT OF PICS and VIDS since that will be the only time u enter the Sasana Kijang and Lanai Kijang.

How to Start a Scholarship Essay (With Examples)

kijang scholarship essay

As an admissions officer, I reviewed thousands of essays for students seeking admission and scholarships. The essay is one of the most important parts of the scholarship application process–a strong essay can go a long way. However, with so much competition, it is important for your scholarship essay to stand out. That’s why it’s important for you to start a scholarship essay off right!

There are some very simple things that you can do to ensure that your essay is engaging from the very first sentence. In fact, beginning your essay with an exciting opening is one of the most important things you can do, because it will immediately distinguish your essay from the others. 

Keep on reading to learn more about how you can nail the very first sentence and start your essay off right!

Engage the reader with the first sentence

No matter what type of essay you are writing, you will want to ensure that the very first line grabs the attention of the reader. One of the biggest mistakes that students make when starting their essay is simply restating the prompt. This is bland and boring. 

Now, you might be wondering, “how do I engage the reader with the very first line of my essay?”. The good news is that there are several ways that you can do this that are very simple to do. 

Related:  How to answer scholarship essay questions about your career goals

Begin with dialogue

First, you could begin your essay with conversation. This can be an interesting and unexpected way to start your scholarship essay. Maybe someone asked you an unexpected question? Perhaps you were having an interesting conversation with a friend or family member? Either way, dialogue can be a powerful tool to start your essay.

Put the reader in your shoes.

Alternatively, you can choose to start your essay by placing the reader right in your shoes and show them something from your life. Appeal to the senses and show the reader what you see, hear, smell, or taste. These specific details will help your essay come to life and make it even more memorable. 

Also recommended: What’s the best scholarship essay format?

Scholarship essay introduction example

Next,  we’ll look at a specific example of how you can open up your essay. Let’s say you are applying for the Questbridge scholarship program . One of the essays that you will be asked is:

We are interested in learning more about you and the context in which you have grown up, formed your aspirations, and accomplished your academic successes. Please describe the factors and challenges that have most influenced you. How are they shaping your future aspirations?

You might be tempted to rephrase the question and start your essay with something like:

“I have grown up in a rural context and this has formed my aspirations and allowed me to accomplish academic success…”

This is generic and will not engage your reader at all. 

Instead, what if you started off your essay with something like this:

“I look outside my bedroom window and see Henry, my favorite chicken, pecking at something in the dirt.” 

Makes a big difference, right? As a reader, you are probably wondering: why does this person have chickens outside their bedroom window? Why did they name this particular chicken Henry?

Keep the ending of your essay in mind as you write the opening

While crafting your opening, be open to ideas about how to close your essay. There is no need to stress about the ending now, but being mindful of effective ways to end an essay is always a good idea. Say you are opening your scholarship essay with Henry the chicken. Is there a way for Henry to make an impactful appearance at the end of the essay to close things out in a way that perfectly wraps everything up? The key is for the essay ending to be meaningful and memorable for the reader. 

Don’t miss: Our free scholarship search tool

If you can’t think of a “wow” scholarship essay beginning, keep writing!

Sometimes, we know what we want to say, point by point, but we are not ready to be creative when it comes to opening an essay. In that case, keep writing! There is always the option of going back and crafting an engaging opening after your essay is written. Simply write your main idea where the first paragraph would be to guide you as you write. After, go back when your creative juices are flowing, and craft the amazing opening (and closing) that your scholarship essay deserves!

Final thoughts

As shown, there are many questions that we as readers will have after reading an engaging essay opening such as the one just shared; We want to learn more about the student who is writing this essay. After all, as a writer trying to stand out in a pile of essays, that is our main goal. 

We hope that you have a better understanding of how to start a scholarship essay so you can maximize your chances of winning scholarships!

Kijang Academy Experience | Bank Negara Malaysia Scholarship

kijang scholarship essay

The dream — it was so vivid. I said it was a dream because it almost seemed like it was. I was half- asleep at 2 AM on a Friday, scrolling my chats in a pitch-black room while being entirely oblivious of what’s ahead of me. Just seconds away before entering the state of subconsciousness, I was promptly informed by a friend (via text) regarding an email — an email that was long-awaited by almost 200 18-year-old teenagers who joined the final stage of Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) Scholarship. Thinking it was a prank (I thought it would come out in a week and probably because I was semi-awake), I casually opened the Gmail app with zero expectation of the actual results. How foolish I was.

Among the many unread spams and promotion emails I received, there was one incredibly enticing email that stood out from the rest. And to this day, I still can’t stop thinking about the first word written on the email…

I hope that is enough to hook you up to read this to the end. You might be here to prepare for your upcoming interview or to rummage ideas for your essay, or maybe perhaps you just want to have a glimpse of my application process for the aforementioned scholarship. I will be giving tips, followed by my own anecdotal experience. I’m splitting this into two main sections:

Kijang Academy (Assessment, video submission, ice-breaking, case study, and personal interview)

If you’re far enough into the future, COVID-19 might become an ancient history then (aamiin). But back in my year, we had to go through all of this process virtually from the comfort of our own home. Nonetheless, it was still an eye-opening experience for me. Hopefully, this piece of writing will be able to inspire you in ways that are beneficial <3.

p/s: stay tuned till the end bcs I may have included a cheat code (not literally)

Out of all the essays that I have ever written, I have never been as invested as this one. It was a generous but reasonable 500-word essay with a flexible guideline on what to write. There were two questions that I didn’t exactly remember, but essentially they told us to convince them i)why we are worthy of the scholarship, ii)our career aspirations.

First step: DON’T RUSH!

I typed them all in caps which means it is important. I have learned my lesson after writing my UEM Scholarship essay beforehand (it was horrible). Take your time to find inspiration. Reflect and contemplate on your past. The good times and the ordeals you’ve gone through that shaped you into becoming who you are today. Jot down anything that brings significance to you while briefly elaborate: i) The description of the event

ii) What did you learn from that event

iii) Relation to your main goal (refer to the question) [ Note: This would come in handy for interviews as well. ]

Then for the 2nd question, try to research your interests to get a better depth of understanding. Explore them. You will be bound to learn something new in this period, do not only think of writing an impeccable essay. Look forward to the journey of writing the essay instead, so you will only write about yourself instead of something that is “try-hard” to imitate the best. I promise you they have read many essays that are full of jargon and pretentious, to the extent that it seemed fake. They want something original, so explore your interest.

Second step: Draft

After you listed your prospective ideas, get to the keyboard right away and start writing. I honestly like to write them promptly without “buat rangka karangan”. I think I can articulate my ideas better that way, but it’s just me. Suit yourself whichever you feel comfortable with the most. One pro I would agree with if you were to rangka your essay first is, you get to estimate the word count better so you don’t have to cut them after. Make sure you answer the question accurately.

Do describe your experience in a lucid manner (Show, not tell). For example: “I enjoy playing futsal to relieve stress” “The laughter and joy of playing futsal allows me to feel like a human amidst the stressful upcoming exams”

The second sentence puts the reader in your shoes more concretely and subsequently, immerse them deeper into the understanding of your perspectives. Also, please give convincing reasons for each of your aspirations/ambitions. If you want to become an economist because you want to help people; explain what makes you think that way. There must be a reason why you choose economics as a channel and why you want to help people. Again, show and not tell. Let your sentences have a hint of mystery, yet easy to be figured out, instead of giving direct ideas. It is just psychology, the reader would be more invested in your stories if they do a bit of work to digest your essay, in contrast to if you just spoon-feed them information.

Third step: Proofread

Alright, you’ve done the main part, now it is time to review it by yourself, followed by your friends/seniors/family. You might have several excess words, so let’s start with that. Shave off words or sentences that are insignificant. One way to do this is by reading that part of your essay with and without the sentence. Then compare which sounds better so you can identify the necessity of that sentence. As for words, search for redundancy. I suggest you use Grammarly to check this, the free version is adequate.

Also, remember to focus more on quality than quantity. Honestly, they don’t care how many competitions you’ve won and all. If you’re not so active in extra co-curricular activities, it’s totally fine. I only mentioned one major achievement in my essay but I proved to them that I truly maximised the minimal opportunity I had. Even little things like being a class monitor can be big if done so with meticulous justifications. So, if you did boast yourself with a list of achievements, I would advise you to limit them to only three at most.

The world doesn’t revolve around you, get your friends to give some thoughts on your essay. What you want to convey might not be delivered in the 500-word. Ask around for people that you can rely on to summarise the main points of your draft and be open to honest criticisms. Constructive criticisms will improve your writing if you look at it positively. Tell them to put your essay under intense scrutiny for any potential improvement, even if your essay is almost faultless. Like Oli Sykes said, “True friends stab you in the front”. They criticise in front of you instead of letting you stay in the dark, so you know your flaws that need to be fixed.

My first draft was horrendous to the extent that my friend prepared a google document to point out the inaccuracies on my essay every 2-3 sentences or so. Of course, I was demoralised knowing how much I sucked at writing, but it helped me to ameliorate my ideas. I had to scrap a big chunk of my essay, thus scripting an almost entirely different one. Ultimately, I was very much impressed and satisfied with the final product. The small conclusion here is; do accept criticisms, it is totally fine to not have a headstart. This whole process is an open chance for you to learn.

I think that would be all for the essay. Sorry if you’re here for an easy pursuit of ideas. I will only show you the path, you must do the rest. The most important element for this stage is for you to be sincere, show them a portrait of your life in form of anecdotes and arguments. Don’t hesitate to ask for sample essays and thoughts from others. Know that for my batch, arguably only around 200 applicants out of 3000 eligible applicants got into the next stage (like 7%??). Hence, why I am firm with my belief that the essay is the most integral part of the application process. Write passionately. Dedicate as much time as you can to research and work on your essay. You have nothing to lose. Even if you did not reach the next stage, it definitely would be a renaissance for you to discover more about yourself and the world.

Kijang Academy

July 16th, I swear that night revitalised my hope after getting rejected for other scholarships. YESS!! I was invited to Kijang Academy SHJDSHD!! This stage was split into two main parts; assignments and interviews. First assignment (Psychometric assessment)

I honestly do not know much on what to advise here sozz HAHAHAH. One of the few things that I could suggest is very cliche like be sincere and consistent. The AI is designed to know what type of person are you, not to evaluate how good of a person you are. You would be in great trouble if you do not answer the questions truthfully. Also, be consistent with your answers. Some of the questions are repetitive but were rephrased in different words. So, do watch out for that, and don’t put yourself in a pickle.

There is also a belief saying that you should avoid choosing the “extreme” options (Strongly agree/strongly disagree). I do follow this to a certain extent. I do neutralise some of my answers, yet I still pick a few extreme options if it truly suits me. My awesomee senior, Izzati wrote more about this on her blog. It was my vital reference at that time — which ultimately lead me to receive the scholarship. So make sure to check it out!

https://izzatizahirae.blogspot.com/2020/07/bank-negara-kijang-scholarschip.html?m=1

Second assignment (Video submission)

For this section, we were instructed to produce a short video on the following topics: i) BNM’s steps to assist the rakyat during the COVID-19 pandemic ii) Be better or be the best?

iii) Who is your superhero?

We have about 3 days to brainstorm our ideas before writing a script and shoot the video. And that’s not even including the time to edit. Just like Izzati said on her blog, “time was of the essence”. Choose your topic carefully depending on how much it suits you. I like sharing my life experience and I thought it is a good opportunity for me to pick the superhero topic so I can tell more about myself. Since I believe that my development has been largely impacted by inspirations, I have no problem enunciating my thoughts. If you’re more of a debate person and like argumentative topics, then go for questions like number 2. It is all on you.

Also, be creative in your videos. They give a lot of flexibility for you to interpret the topics. For instance, most people would pick someone close to them as a superhero. It was different for me. I chose someone that probably never knew about my existence, and he is also a quite peculiar figure to be looked at as a superhero HAHAHAH. Nonetheless, I drafted it well by providing interesting facts and how he became a superhero of mine. For this kind of question at least, since they ask about your superhero, I believe it is important that you tell about yourself too.

Flexibility was also given to us graphics-wise. Instead of just presenting your script in front of the camera, you can literally do anything to make your movie more interesting to watch. As long as it adheres to the guidelines and moral appropriation of course. I emulated the style of Vsauce for my video, which if you don’t know, is like a quirky/comical style of educational videos. I also featured myself doing random things like playing with my cats, pretending to drive a car, pretending to participate in a marathon, and a bunch of others. I thought it would be great to provide some sort of entertainment for the interviewers, something strikingly different for them to remember me. Anddd I think I absolutely aced in that aspect. One of the first things they mentioned during my personal interview is the humouring video, which they found very funny! What follows is largely dependent on their first impression of you. If you’re dead serious on your video, then they will be dead serious during the interview too. I captivated their attention with my essay and video (which they read and watch right before your interview), this leads them to invest their interest in me a bit more.

So be creative okie!! One of my seniors created a very interesting vlog for his submission, another even sung throughout the video! Do not be afraid to break the norms.

Kijang Academy Preparation

Abraham Lincoln said, “give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.” Adhering to that quote, I really worked my socks off prior to the interview day (on the 24th of July). I was fortunate to have seniors guiding me —giving me a first-hand account of what to expect. But there’s no point in guiding someone without execution.

I have a few friends who also got to this stage. We grouped up to work together in discussing sample case studies to get a glimpse of the discussion ambience. After months of isolation, this is a great initiative to loosen up your rusty social skills and get back to your usual self. If you guys are reading this, I want you to know that you are awesome!! :D

I found this really helpful in the sense that I learned to respect others’ opinions, not overpowering the discussion, and to be concise whenever I got the spotlight to speak. I understand that some people might not have the privilege to connect with friends and seniors. In that case, don’t worry! You can always practice with yourself. For instance, I prepared for my JPA interview only by recording myself answering sample questions before watching the recording afterwards. In that way, I can analyse my answers from the spectacles of the interviewers’ view. If you do have the privilege, then do utilise it to the utmost potential.

A mock interview is also a good way to go. Arrange a one-hour session with your friends to practicalize what you have prepared. You know sometimes you had the answer to the question, but then all of it goes blank. So, this is one of the ways to not be uneasy when D-Day came upon. You can also give feedback to one another on what and how to improve. Basically, it was a total joy to listen to my friends’ opinions and stories. It really loosened me up for the interview, in contrast to my supposition that it will be tense. Be professional but casual. Props to them too! Wouldn’t be possible if not for them <3

I am sure you know what to do about the rest. Research on Bank Negara, re-read your essay (they might ask questions on that) and write pre-written answers. Ultimately, be prepared. Not only theoretically, but also practically.

Ice-breaking Session

For my year, we had to pick a virtual background picture that pleases us, fun or humorous. Just like the essay, this ice-breaking session is also the first domino that will affect your whole performance afterwards. This is the time for you to unwind. You don’t need to be too formal in this session, the same goes for the case study discussion later. Prove yourself as a person that is easy-going with others, so you can build a harmonious and interactive discussion.

We were instructed to tell more about our background picture before picking someone else’s as a favourite. Mine is a picture of my friend and a cat, which might seem a bit weird but it has a very rich and sweet-sour backstory to it. I was not the first to present my story. In fact, I was second to last (if I remember correctly). But considering the peculiarity of my choice of picture (I was the only one to choose a picture that is not from the Internet), I think it was a strategy to hook the interviewers up for my turn. Mystery and intriguing were what I aimed for. All in all, it worked! We had laughter and from the expression they gave, I could tell they really enjoyed my story :D. In the end, 3 out of 7 other participants chose my picture as their favourite before proceeding to tell their own fascinating story.

One thing I want to say here is DON’T BOAST YOURSELF. Ice-breaking is not a platform for you to flex and shove your achievements on others — insinuating that you are better than them. Save that for the personal interview. It is not a competition here. In my case, I did not even mention anything about my success though I can totally posit it right away. All I said was about the cat and memories with my friends in taking care of the cat back in MRSM TGB. The task will probably be different for other years, but the argument still stands.

Case Study Session

Okay, let’s put it this way. If the ice-breaking session is to evaluate your social skills, this session is to judge your ability to work in a team. If you still think this is a competition — better drop that mentality. To be brutally honest, I was not the alpha of the group. I was active, but in a sense that is not limiting others to voice out their opinions. I tried to contribute instead of dominating. Give suggestions, not instructions.

Prior to this, we were given a topic about National Vaccination Plan. They gave us a set of statistics and scenarios to take into consideration one day before the actual case study session. Then we had 40 minutes to discuss before proceeding to the presentation and Q&A session. Don’t worry, the case study requires nothing but basic calculation and adequate English proficiency. However, one thing we did was making a comparison table for the vaccination plans. In that way, we were able to clearly outline the critical points.

Let’s get into the technicals here, shall we?

Be respectful. They're your colleagues, not rivals.

Be inclusive. Do not be hard-bitten. Ask for others’ opinions.

Do not overpower the discussion.

Be concise and only speak what is necessary. 40 minutes is shorter than it seems.

Take initiatives (such as writing notes on the chat, doing calculations, timekeeping)

Listen to others and take notes of their info. It might be helpful to credit them for ideas/referrals. It proves that you’re a good listener.

There’s nothing much to worry about for this session. Yes, you need to be well prepared, but not to the extent where you’re being too meticulous on a task that was meant to be brief and simple. A general reminder for this session is “do not be self-centred”. That is all.

Individual Interview

This is your final chance to prove yourself. The first thing that you need to know is; BE SINCERE! Being dishonest or over-exaggerating your achievements/knowledge can be analogised as borrowing one million dollars from a loan shark, it would only get you into trouble afterwards. The reason is, questions will be asked by the interviewers according to your previous answers. So, let’s say if they asked you “What is your passion?”, and you sugarcoated your answer by saying that you love history. They will ask follow-up questions that are related to history and BNM’s horizon. In my case, I kinda over-boasted myself by mentioning that I am interested in behavioural economics. The consequence is very risky, but I humbly said that I just learned about the theory and will try my best to answer based on what I understand.

Also, be open to corrections before you proceed to talk about anything factual. This will prove that you’re not a “palataologist” that always “acah pandai”. In my opinion, it is a big advantage if you appear humble, yet passionate about what you’re doing. It is totally fine if you don’t know what to answer. Just admit that you’re underinformed and they will shift their attention onto other questions that fit your knowledge better. If you proceed to answer blindly, it will only result in time wastage and the interviewers will most probably criticise your lack of factual accuracy.

Hence, I extremely advise you to be truthful and be yourself :).

Here’s a bit about my experience — I was actually expecting the interviewers to ask more personal questions since that was the case for my seniors and even my fellow friends post-interview. However, once it was my turn, they put me into the hot seat — bombarded me with high-level questions. One of the first questions they asked me was veryyyy factual indeed; “I see that you’re into behavioural economics, tell me how this can help BNM”. The reason they asked this was because of a paragraph of my essay where I mentioned behavioural economics as the future of economic theories. (Another reason to know your essay in-and-out before the interview). With my very basic knowledge, I took a risk by talking about “game theory” in economic decision-making. I did pretty well (I think) before it backfired at me when the interviewer asked me about books and economics professors relating to that field of study. At that time I had to back up and admit my illiteracy on that. They were okay with it and moved on to other questions that I definitely can answer better.

Here is a brief version of my advice in accordance with its importance:

#1 Be yourself, be honest (Yes it is cliche but it will save your life)

#2 Emphasise more on the benefits of your co-curricular activities — not the results

#3 Show your passion, speak with enthusiasm. You must prove that you learn because it is your passion, not an obligation.

#4 You do not need to be too formal. You can even rojak. Make your speeches interesting. #5 Don’t speak for too long. Be concise to keep them entertained. Don’t worry they will ask you questions until they are satisfied. Longer answers will only label you as boring when compared to others.

#6 Ask for a minute before answering their questions if you need to. I did and they’re totally fine with it.

#7 Have fun throughout the session. Don’t be someone that has infinite knowledge but zero personality

#8 Know your interviewers, so you can eye out what particulars they are interested in. It is also super attractive to compliment/refer them on what you’re saying.

#9 Do a background check on BNM. Know why they’re different compared to other banks and scholarships. Put that as a reason why you want Kijang Scholarship. (Hint: they’re a central bank, and one unique difference that sets apart itself from other banks is…) p/s: yes this is the cheat code

I think the essay is the most pivotal part of the application. Even until the final stage, they will judge you (or be biased) by your essay. An impressive and striking essay will give a positive long-lasting first impression on you. Even if you mess up your interview a bit, you still have hope in your essay (and video) to lobby their judgement. I kicked off my essay with a quote from Plato regarding economic inequality. Instead of giving statistics to elaborate the issue, I explained by narrating it from my perspective and encounters

“The epiphany came to me after watching the film “Snowpiercer”, of which I found my passion in economics.”

From this sentence only, I conveyed that i) I am a movie buff, ii) I am inquisitive even when I am having fun, iii) I have a definite interest in economics.

The reason I mention this here instead of the essay section is that this is the epitome of my writing that can be applied to every stage and session of this whole selection process:

i) Be passionate about your hobbies and interests. Even if it seems common and unbeneficial on the surface (in my case it’s movies)

ii) Be curious and excited to learn something new

iii) Be determined to be a scholar of the Central Bank of Malaysia

And yes, if you’re wondering. I did get the scholarship in the end. The 7-days waiting period seems like forever. The agony of waiting and sacrificial efforts that I made was totally worth it. So, even if you didn’t get the award at the end. Make it a stepping stone for you to work harder. Getting this scholarship is an opportunity, but not a guarantee for you to excel in the future. Results do matter, but the journey is more important. I am sure you will learn a lot from this experience.

All the best and have fun!! <3
