Here is what you need to know about the RM150 BAP financial aid that schools will start distributing to all students in Malaysia!
RM150 BAP Aid For Students In Malaysia : What Is It?
On January 9, 2023, the government of Malaysia announced the Early Aid For Education (BAP – Bantuan Awal Persekolahan), which is meant to lighten the load for parents or guardians at the beginning of the school year.
To that end, the Malaysia government will give a one-time financial aid of RM150 to every student attending Standard 1 through Form 5 for the 2023/2024 school year.
The BAP funds will be channeled to each school, and it will be up to the individual school to distribute the money to the student, or credit it into the bank account of his/her parent or guardian.
