Maybank launches first ever ASEAN-Maybank Scholarship programme, invests RM5m for intakes up to 2025

Maybank has collaborated with the ASEAN Secretariat to jointly introduce the ASEAN-Maybank Scholarship (AMS) programme 2022 – the first ever scholarship programme by a regional organisation in partnership with the ASEAN Secretariat.

The scholarship, which will involve an investment of some RM5 million for the initial intakes up to 2025, is part of Maybank’s continued commitment to invest in the future of ASEAN youth through education.

AMS is designed to provide young, talented and deserving ASEAN nationals, especially those from the lower income segment, with full scholarships to pursue their undergraduate education in prestigious universities outside their own countries, but within the ASEAN region. For the first intake this year, a total of three scholarships are being offered, which will progressively be increased to 10 a year by 2025 and thereafter.

For the inaugural AMS 2022 intake, the three scholarships will be available for first-year undergraduates who will be placed in top public universities in Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand and the Philippines, and this will gradually be expanded to the remaining ASEAN countries. Students may undergo a three or four year programme, studying in fields such as Finance, Information Technology, Psychology, Economics, Marketing, Law, Human Resource, Banking, Mathematics, or Future Ready related courses such as programming, coding, creative design, data and science.

Online applications are currently open until 16 April 2022 and can be viewed on the Maybank and ASEAN Secretariat websites and social media platforms. Interested applicants may also visit for further information.
