Granting of scholarships to deserving Malaysian students to pursue their tertiary education has been a key feature of Maybank’s CSR efforts since 1972. It is a major component of the ‘Education’ theme from the three (3) Corporate Responsibility pillars adopted by Maybank Foundation, with the main objective of:

  • Provide financial assistance to deserving students with high potential.
  • Create a strong Entry Level Pipeline comprising fresh graduates from top-tier universities.
  • Strengthen Maybank’s reputation as the top employer of talents, particularly amongst fresh graduates.

To-date, close to 2,000 Malaysian students have benefited from this programme with access to obtaining good quality under-graduate education in various disciplines which are applicable to banking and finance from some of the best top-tier universities in the world. Starting from 2019, the Maybank Group Scholarship Programme is available in countries where Maybank has significant local presence and full banking services in Cambodia, Indonesia and the Philippines.
