Hong Leong Undergraduate Scholarship Programme 2017

The Hong Leong Undergraduate Scholarship Programme 2017 application is currently opened and ongoing. This undergraduate scholarship programme is very reliable. All prospective applicants are to read the procedures and application requirements below.

About the programme:

This non-bonded scholarship has traditionally been the backbone of the Foundation to benefit Malaysian students from low-income families and it was primarily the reason the Foundation was set up. The Foundation believes that providing scholarships is about providing opportunities – giving a chance to students to have the higher education necessary to come into their own and be the next generation of leaders and captains of industry.
The agreed-upon scholarship payment will be banked into the student’s Hong Leong Bank account (for public institution students) or paid directly to the institution (for private institution students) once a year. Our scholars are required to submit their invoice and receipt to Hong Leong Foundation for administrative purpose.
Hong Leong Foundation scholarship is NOT a loan so you don’t have to pay anything back.
Our scholarship is non-bonding, which means that there is no obligation to serve the Group after your graduate. However, you are welcome to explore employment opportunities with the Group upon graduation.
