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 six (6) 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.
