Sunway scholarships for the deserving community
Recently, The Jeffrey Cheah Foundation awarded scholarships amounting to RM11.7 million to 1700 students of Sunway University and Sunway College!
Launched in 2010 by the Prime Minister of Malaysia and first-of-its-kind in Malaysia within the field of private higher education, the scholarships are mostly need and merit-based; this year, the awards include scholarships to 13 individuals from the underprivileged community, and those from Homes such as Rumah Keluarga Kami, Rumah KIDS and Rumah Ozanam as well as scholarships for Sports and Music under the talent category.
A not-for-profit foundation, The Jeffrey Cheah Foundation ensures assets, funds and operating surpluses are used to perpetuate the cause of bringing quality education to future Malaysian students. It continues the mandate of the Sunway Education Trust established in March 1977 and thus far, both entities have disbursed more than RM92 million in scholarships to more than 13,000 deserving students.
During last month’s award ceremony, the Guest-of-Honour Tan Sri Dr. Jeffrey Cheah AO, Founding Trustee of the Jeffrey Cheah Foundation said in his speech, “The Jeffrey Cheah Foundation was founded on the premise of giving back to society and as beneficiaries of the scholarships, I hope that you will keep the spirit of giving back to society close to your heart in all aspects of your life. Regardless of the area of study you embark on, I hope that you will rise to the occasion in championing this spirit of giving and that it will filter through in both your personal and professional lives”.
