Everyone deserves an opportunity to pursue what they love doing. How many have that option?

At CIMB, we are committed towards helping young talent in need to realise their dreams. We go beyond providing financial support by also providing professional development and a mentor support system designed to empower the region's young talent to build a bright future and make a difference for those around them.

The CIMB ASEAN Scholarship is a highly selective, full scholarship for exceptional students from ASEAN countries in which CIMB has a presence. We are looking for individuals fueled up to go beyond the ordinary.

In recognition of the evolving nature of the banking industry, CIMB welcomes applicants from a wide variety of academic disciplines.

We have previously sponsored applicants studying Computer Science, Data Science and Psychology, in addition to applicants pursuing degrees traditionally associated with a career in banking such as Accounting, Economics and Finance.
