YH2 Capital Scholarship at Magdalene College
The YH2 Capital Scholarship programme launched in 2019 and is fully funded by the co-founders and co-CEOs of YH2 Capital Management Pte. Ltd. in Singapore.
The programme offers one fully funded, bond-free Scholarship each year for undergraduate study at Magdalene College. The selection committee of the Scholarship is looking for an outstanding Malaysian candidate with exemplary academic and personal qualities who does not have the full financial means to pursue a degree at the University of Cambridge without the help of the Scholarship.
The Scholarship will not impose any bond on the Scholar being awarded. The Donors intend the Scholar to be free to choose their place of residency and their career post-graduation from the University of Cambridge. The key objective of the Donors is to offer the Scholar lacking financial means an opportunity to not only attend Cambridge University, but to subsequently pursue his/her career aspirations without constraints.
Malaysian students studying overseas, especially those on ASEAN scholarships studying in Singapore, are welcome to apply for the Scholarship.
Full eligibility requirements are detailed in the Scholarship Details document available to download below.
In order to be eligible you must be a citizen of Malaysia and have received a conditional offer for a place at Magdalene College for undergraduate study in one of the accepted subjects.
The basic tenure of the Scholarship is for the full duration of the degree course from the start of the academic year (1 October).
Value of Scholarship
Full details of the value of the Scholarship are listed in the Scholarship Details document available to download below.
In determining the value of the Scholarship in individual cases, the College will take into account the candidate’s income from all sources and a partial scholarship may be awarded.
Full details of the application procedure are listed in the Scholarship Details document available to download below.
