The Hong Leong Foundation has, as part of its philanthropy framework, designed a Scholarship Programme to benefit Malaysian students from low-income families and includes families whose children live with disabilities.
The Foundation believes that providing scholarship is about providing opportunities – giving deserving students the chance to have the higher education necessary to become tomorrow’s leaders. Over one and a half million Ringgit is allocated each year for scholarship grants for the public for diploma and undergraduate studies at local universities and selected institutions of higher learning. Invitations are also extended to the scholars for industrial training at Group companies to help ensure that scholars graduate into the workforce with sufficient knowledge and relevant experience.
The scholarship is awarded to qualified Malaysian students for pursuing full-time Undergraduate Studies (first degree course and to be completed in Malaysia only) and Diploma Courses tenable at recognised public and private universities and colleges in Malaysia.
Those pursuing Foundation, Pre-U, Matriculation, Overseas Transfer Programme or other similar university preparatory course (except Diploma) will not be considered. Please do not apply.
