The National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN) celebrated the establishment of Jubli Perak 25 Tahun in 2022. The launching of Logo Sambutan Jubli Perak 25 Tahun by PTPTN today was officiated by Datuk Wan Saiful Wan Jan, the Chairman of PTPTN, at Menara PTPTN. The event was streamed live on PTPTN Official's Facebook page and PTPTN TV YouTube channel. The Executive Chief of PTPTN, Encik Ahmad Dasuki Abdul Majid, was also present at the event along with the top management of PTPTN.
The Logo Sambutan Jubli Perak 25 Tahun PTPTN was perfected with the theme 'Peluang Kejayaan Anda,' which highlights the number 25 symbolizing PTPTN’s 25 years of establishment as an agency under the Ministry of Higher Education (KPT) that has been providing educational loans and saving deposits for higher education purposes.
The circle shape with an arrow reaching for the mortar board symbolizes PTPTN's effort in helping IPT students graduate. The silver colour represents 25 years of PTPTN's excellence in assisting students in furthering their studies at IPT and subsequently being able to contribute their energy to religion, races, and country. The use of blue and yellow colours is in line with the corporate colour of PTPTN.
Meanwhile, the mortar board silhouette's design resembles the PTPTN's success in helping students at Higher Education Institutions (IPT) graduate and opening up opportunities for them. The PTPTN's logo crosses the number five (5), and a circle symbolizes PTPN as Malaysia's leading education fund, which enables students to pursue higher education without financial burden.
The logo was created through the 'Reka Cipta Logo Sambutan Jubli Perak 25 Tahun PTPTN (1997 - 2022)' competition held from 10 January 2022 until 3 February 2022 and was open to all Malaysian citizens. This competition received a very encouraging response, especially from the participation of IPT's students. The presentation of the primary winner of the match was also held in the same ceremony. The primary winner was Encik Muhammad Bakhtiar Bin Baharuddin from Baling, Kedah, who brought home a cash reward of RM2,500. He is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Cell and Molecular Biology with Honours at the University Putra Malaysia (UPM).
In addition, every consolation winner brought home a cash reward worth RM250.00. Below is the list of the winners:
Primary: RM2,500.00 x 1
Runner-up: RM250.00 x 5
Various programs have been designed to intensify further the celebration of PTPTN's Jubli Perak 25 Tahun. The programs include Reka Cipta Logo Sambutan Jubli Perak 25 Tahun PTPTN competition, Kempen Cabutan WOW! Simpan SSPN 25 Tahun PTPTN, Kempen Bulan Menabung Simpan SSPN (BMS) 25 Tahun, and the highlight celebration, Majlis Sambutan Jubli Perak 25 Tahun PTPTN.
The Chairman of PTPTN, Datuk Wan Saiful Wan Jan, said, "Various challenges and obstacles PTPTN's staff have overcome for the past 25 years of sowing devotion solely to see the success of the nation's children to the ivory tower. Now that 25 years have passed, with the effort and spirit of commitment borne by all PTPTN's staff, PTPTN will celebrate Jubli Perak 25 Tahun in 2022. This celebration is a sign of PTPTN's appreciation and gratitude to all parties who have joined hand in hand with them to preserve PTPTN's aspirations for excellence."
"PTPTN's role in helping students for higher education's purpose is crucial and as a pillar for the nation's human capital development. PTPTN is also committed to ensuring parents have financial planning for their children by introducing the National Education Saving Scheme (Simpan SSPN). PTPTN's measures continue through Pelan Strategik PTPTN 2021-2025. In addition, PTPTN is continuously exploring new approaches to improve customer service quality to align with the national higher education objectives. PTPTN is also determined to give brighter opportunities to even more students, as told in PTPTN's motto, 'Peluang Kejayaan Anda'", Datuk Wan Saiful explained.
"It is my great hope that PTPTN continues to contribute and continue the legacy of excellence and always maintain PTPTN's image of excellence. PTPTN customers are also expected to always support PTPTN as the country's main higher education fund and participate in programs in conjunction with PTPTN's 25th Anniversary that have been planned throughout this year," added Datuk Wan Saiful.
PTPTN was established under the National Higher Education Fund Corporation Act 1997 (Act 556), which came into force on 1 July 1997. PTPTN began operating on 1 November 1997 at Bangunan Wisma Chase Perdana, Off Jalan Semantan, Damansara Heights, Kuala Lumpur.
