KPMG is inviting Malaysian undergraduates to apply for the KPMG Asean Scholarship.

This provides funding and employment opportunities in five Asean nations, namely Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.

First set up in 2015, KPMG is the first and only Big Four to offer this programme in the region. This year also marks the first time that KPMG member firms in Cambodia and Vietnam are joining in.

Scholars looking to get a head-start in their careers will enjoy a structured cross-border experience with the professional services firm.

It is open to outstanding Malaysian undergraduates who are currently in their first or second year of their degree programme in any discipline.

Successful applicants will receive an annual scholarship grant of RM12,000 per scholar, and two internship opportunities – one with the Malaysia firm and another with one of the other four participating member firms in Asean.

Upon graduation, the candidate can also secure an employment opportunity with KPMG in Malaysia.

KPMG in Malaysia Head of People Adrian Lee said the scholarship programme is one of the many ways the firm invests in the future.

“Since 2015, we received more than 5,000 applications and, through a rigorous selection process, have supported 29 promising undergraduates from various universities across Malaysia,” he said.

Each scholar gets an annual scholarship grant and mentorship from partners. 

The application deadline is May 31. For details, visit
