“It is more than just a full-ride scholarship, it grooms its scholars to be the next generation of leaders,” said Khadijah Azamin, a 2017 CIMB ASEAN Scholarship recipient who enrolled in the University of Melbourne. This sentiment perfectly captures the transformative power of the scholarship programme and what it can do to your life too.
Studying at a dream university and receiving a world-class education can become a reality. Since 2016, CIMB's ASEAN Scholarship programme has awarded outstanding individuals with full scholarships and comprehensive coverage of expenses. This includes all tuition fees, living expenses, laptop, books, visa, insurance and other related expenses for any field of study at leading universities worldwide.
The CIMB ASEAN Scholarship has been a significant opportunity for alumni who have achieved remarkable success in their careers and contributed to personal and professional growth of the recipients.
This article explores the transformative impact of the scholarship on deserving students.
The CIMB ASEAN Scholarship, a truly unique one is its focus on cultivating a wide range of skills among its recipients.
The scholarship programme welcomes students from diverse backgrounds and perspectives. It accepts students in the fields of computer science, data science, psychology, or disciplines, apart from the traditional banking subjects such as accounting, economics and finance. By welcoming applicants from a large selection of academic disciplines, CIMB empowers its scholars to explore their passions and develop a versatile skillset that aligns with the changing demands of the banking sector.
Additionally, recipients also benefit from a team of mentors who are dedicated to coaching and empowering scholars to achieve their full potential. The CIMB mentorship programme further enhances the growth and development of scholars, providing guidance and support as they embark on their academic and professional journeys. It also equips them with the necessary tools to navigate the complexities and embrace new challenges, which fosters a mindset of resilience and innovation.
Shazia binti Sazli, a 2021 CIMB ASEAN Scholarship recipient enrolled at the University of Bath said, “What makes this scholarship stand out is the personal development that the scholarship provides during and after the education period.”
The scholarship programme also provides valuable opportunities for recipients to pursue their passions and aspirations through internships and post-graduation. CIMB's post-graduation employment opportunities offer a seamless transition for scholars from academia to the professional world. It offers a unique opportunity for recipients to launch their careers with CIMB upon graduation.
The management trainee programmes are designed to support recipients' career development. Trainees will be involved in high-priority projects and instantly feel appreciated for their contribution to the team.
Scholarship recipients can rest assured knowing they are guaranteed employment upon graduation. With the first steps into a new career secured, you can hit the ground running and be sure of exciting employment opportunities within the CIMB Group.
Networking plays a vital role in any successful career. Because of that, the CIMB ASEAN Scholarship programme offers opportunities for recipients to connect with professionals, industry leaders and fellow scholars from across the ASEAN region.
The networking events create an environment conducive to engaging in fruitful discussions, exchanging ideas and collaborating on projects with like-minded peers. This also fosters a sense of camaraderie and encourages a spirit of innovation among the scholars.
"I think individuals that are driven and want to push the boundaries of what they are capable of should apply for the scholarship," shares Madhav Khandhar, a 2021 CIMB ASEAN Scholarship recipient, enrolled at the University of Manchester.
This echoes the sentiment of many alumni who have benefited from the networking opportunities offered by the programme.
The CIMB ASEAN Scholarship programme aims to foster and assist scholarship recipients in integrating into CIMB's culture (EPICC) which highlights values such as Enabling talents, Passion, Integrity & Accountability, Collaboration, and Customer Centricity. This play a vital role in nurturing talent and empowering the recipients to flourish within CIMB's culture, where passion and the pursuit of exceptional outcomes are valued at the highest level.
“As a CIMB ASEAN scholar, I have the privilege of enjoying the extensive support on many fronts,” Sheryl Yang Kim Ee, a 2021 CIMB ASEAN Scholarship recipient, enrolled at the University of Toronto shared.
Scholarship recipients will also get periodic updates on events within CIMB. Conferences such as The Cooler Earth Sustainability Summit feature renowned speakers and leaders who share their expertise and provide valuable insights into areas linked to sustainability allow them to gain a deeper insight into the skills and knowledge necessary to thrive in their respective fields.
For those seeking a transformative educational journey and a launchpad to a bright future, the CIMB ASEAN Scholarship stands out as a beacon of opportunity. The application period is open from now until 11 June 2023.
