The Bright Sparks Program (BSP) – Malaysia
The Bright Sparks unit was established with the task of recruiting outstanding students and scholars with a deep interest in research and academic work. Under the Bright Sparks Program (BSP), bright, enthusiastic and highly motivated candidates are offered various academic and research incentives to work and further their career at the University of Malaya. Successful applicants of this program will be offered attractive incentives including opportunities to further study at postgraduate level at the University of Malaya with a fee waiver and attractive monthly allowance.

Such efforts are imperative in order to ensure that UM is able to compete in various areas of cutting edge research and also to place itself amongst one of the best universities in the world in the near future.
Among the steps taken to this effect is the move to recruit outstanding researchers (Bright Sparks) from within UM itself and from other local and foreign institutions to serve with UM
