Its control and management were placed under the jurisdiction of the Keeper of the Rulers’ Seal, who is also secretary to the Board of the Scholarship Fund.

LAccording to Section 5 (1) of the act, the Board of the Scholarship Fund consists of a Chairman and four other members to be appointed by the Council from among the Menteri Besar and Chief Ministers for a term of two years and shall be eligible for re-appointment. The Chairman shall preside at all meetings of the Board. The Board shall meet at least three times in a year and at any meeting of the Board, the Chairman and two members shall form a quorum.

The number of students being offered a scholarship is limited to available funds. This scholarship is only offered to students who obtained excellent results in the Malaysian Higher School Certificate/Matriculation examinations. The prospective candidates may pursue studies in various disciplines such as medicine, technology, science and arts. The eligible candidates will be those deemed qualified by the Public Service Department (PSD).
