Laila Taib Scholarship Essay

Kolej Laila Taib was established on 1st March 2010 when Kolej Bersatu Sarawak was renamed as Kolej Laila Taib in honour of Datuk Patinggi Dr. Hajjah Laila Taib for her selfless dedication and philanthropic commitments to the generations of Sarawakians during her lifetime.

Kolej Bersatu Sarawak was chosen to carry on Datuk Patinggi’s legacy due to its unprecedented academic records and achievements which it had achieved throughout its 11 years history prior to being renamed as Kolej Laila Taib.
