KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 29 (Bernama) -- Malayan Banking Bhd (Maybank) has awarded 61 deserving Malaysian students from lower-income families with full scholarships worth RM4 million to pursue undergraduate studies at top local and foreign universities this year.
The scholarships, under the Maybank Group Scholarship Award 2022, are in addition to the 71 existing Maybank scholarship holders who are still pursuing their tertiary studies under the programme.
The total cost of scholarships for these 132 students is about RM7.2 million this year.
Chairman Tan Sri Zamzamzairani Mohd Isa said for the past five decades, more than 2,000 students have benefited from Maybank’s scholarship programme, contributing significantly to the growth of the organisation as well as the country.
“We remain committed to continuously developing and enriching the pool of potential talents by providing sponsorships to deserving Malaysian students, especially those under the B40 category, to pursue quality higher education at leading public universities in the country, as well as in the US, Australia, and the United Kingdom,” he said in a statement today.
The Maybank Group Scholarship Award, which has been the group’s core corporate responsibility initiative since the 1970s, encompasses financial support, including tuition fees, living allowances, accommodation, book allowances, insurance coverage and a laptop.
The programme aims to develop talents professionally via a rewarding career with the group.
The career development programme includes internship programmes, business assignments as well as personal and leadership development workshops.
