Education is a fundamental building block for individual opportunity and economic growth.
Through our scholarship programmes, we have and will continue to play our part in realising the country's aspiration of producing world-class human capital that will chart the future of Malaysia.
Our commitment in providing access to quality education is relentless and is translated into actions through our scholarship programmes as well as various other education-based initiatives.
The country's future lies in the hands of our young generation. We take pride in identifying, nurturing and realising the education dreams of high potential Malaysian students who come from diverse backgrounds and different parts of the country - from the small town of Baling in Kedah all the way to Kudat, the northern tip of Borneo.

A campus packed with facilities and services away from the city's hustle and bustle that will help you build a solid foundation in preparing for the undergraduate life.

Good deeds begin at home. Through UEM Study Grant, we provide financial assistance for children of eligible employees across UEM Group of Companies, allowing them to pursue tertiary education in any full-time course at a public or private college or university or even at a vocational or technical institute.
We have been a supporter of Trust Schools Programme since 2014 as we believe it is a comprehensive and sustainable school transformation programme aimed at improving student outcomes and revitalising school culture. Together with Yayasan AMIR, we aim to develop holistic students with 21st century competencies and schools that embed sustainable education practices.
While tuition is a choice to complement formal education provided in schools, it is often seen as a luxury to underprivileged families and students living in rural areas. As part of our efforts to help narrow the education gap between urban and rural students, we form partnerships with several parties in providing tuition to underprivileged students in key subjects such as Mathematics, Bahasa Melayu, Science and English. To date, over 3,000 students from 10 different states in Malaysia benefited from Yayasan UEM’s tuition programme.
