Khazanah - Cambridge Scholarship Programme
Investing in Today’s Talent for Tomorrow’s Promise.
The Khazanah-Cambridge Scholarship provides financial sponsorship to Malaysians who plan to study for postgraduate degree at the University of Cambridge.
The Khazanah-Cambridge Scholarship, established in 2009, is jointly sponsored by Yayasan Khazanah and the Cambridge Commonwealth, European and International Trust (CCEIT).
The Khazanah-Cambridge Scholarship is a leadership development programme that is aimed at building Malaysia's future leadership talent. Recipients of this scholarship are expected to not only demonstrate academic excellence, but also develop their leadership skills through training and participation in a number of activities.

Scholars of the programme will undergo an enriching personal journey, and will also be part of a cadre of future leaders that will be groomed to eventually lead Malaysia's government-linked companies (GLCs). It is a career-long journey that offers Malaysia's top talents an opportunity to realise their full potential in the transformation of Malaysia's GLCs into globally competitive corporations.

The scholarship will cover for the full duration of the course of study, and provides for tuition fees, monthly living expenses, return air passage and other provisions, such as book allowance, establishment and end of study allowances.
