Detailed description
The Merdeka Award Secretariat is pleased to announce that the closing date for applications for the 2013-2014 Merdeka Award Grant for International Attachment has been extended toSaturday, November 30, 2013.
This follows calls from institutions of higher learning as well as prospective applicants, who have requested for the extension to accommodate research and exam schedules. The extension will allow for more young Malaysians to submit their applications for this prestigious Grant.
The Merdeka Award Grant for International Attachment is a signature outreach programme of the Merdeka Award Trust.  It is designed to identify and recognise outstanding young Malaysians, between the ages of 22 – 35, who personify the Spirit of Merdeka, and those who, in their own way, demonstrate a commitment to excellence. The Grant provides them the opportunity to expand their network and to enhance research collaborations through a short-term attachment at selected, internationally-recognised host institutions.
The attachment creates opportunities for recipients to establish contact and working relationships with other experts in their fields, share knowledge and expertise, and upon their return, use these relationships and shared knowledge to further build on the body of work in his or her area of research. 
We would be grateful if you could share information on the Grant and the new deadline with your colleagues, students, staff or members and encourage them to apply for this Grant.
Further information on the Grant and online application forms are available at www.merdekaaward.my
