ASEAN Scholarship

ASEAN Scholarship

Established in 2015, the KPMG ASEAN Scholarship is a regional scholarship program for Malaysian young undergraduates who are looking to get a great start in their careers with a professional services firm. This program is supported by KPMG offices in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam and Cambodia. At the heart of KPMG are our people. We are constantly on the look-out for bright and talented people like you, because we know you have the potential and the ability to change the future for the better. Your dreams and your ambitions will have a place to flourish at KPMG because we are interested in stretching your potential and accelerating your professional success. As a KPMG ASEAN scholar, you can look forward to diverse learning and development opportunities and cross-border exposures through a structured program which consists of three pillars:

Professional Development
To help you build core competencies and skills and develop professionally through induction programs, structured internships in regional firms and mentorships by Partners, amongst other people development initiatives.

Strategic Engagement
To help you build breadth and depth of knowledge across sectors and borders through interactions with KPMG leaders who will share valuable insights about their careers and outlook of the various industries and countries.

Social Connection
Be part of the dynamic ASEAN network where you will get to know and interact with fellow ASEAN scholars who will be future leaders in different KPMG firms.
