The scholarship will be awarded to IIUM Law students, with priority given to academically-sound but financially incapable students. The funds allocation of RM1 million for this purpose will be fully utilized by 14 batches of recipients for the next 18 years. Recipients will receive a full tuition fee, academic recurrent fees, mahallah fees, monthly stipend and book allowance.
As for the refurbishment of the Mahallah Aminah, it will see a significant upgrade of facilities and soon, the students will be able to enjoy better furniture and facilities through the refurbishment, furnishing of room furniture and washroom facilities.
