Financial Aid For Malaysian Undergraduates

Yayasan Kek Lok Si is a foundation that offers financial aid to Malaysian university students regardless of race or religion. It is affiliated to the Buddhist temple, Kek Lok Si located at Air Itam, Penang.

Each year, the foundation disburses about half a million ringgit to students. The fund is available by application to all Malaysian students aged 18 and above who have enrolled either in private or Government colleges or universities and are facing financial difficulties.

What Yayasan Kek Lok Si Is Looking For

Since 2016, Yayasan Kek Lok Si has been providing Malaysian undergraduates with financial aid to ease their financial burden. Unlike other types of financial aid, Yayasan Kek Lok Si differs in that it does not approve aid based merely on a student’s academic results. Your application will be vetted based on your family background and other needs; academic results are not the main deciding criteria. Yayasan Kek Lok Si believes that all Malaysian students should be given opportunities and financial aid as long as they are willing to further their studies. Past recipients of our financial aid are also welcome to send in their applications.
