OCBC offers bond-free scholarships to help bright and talented youths from tertiary education institutions pursue their academic dreams. As an OCBC scholar, you will take on an internship and experience what it’s like to be a part of the OCBC family.
Apart from financial assistance to support both tuition fees and daily living expenses, we also provide our scholars with priority internship opportunities to gain hands-on experiences while working on projects. In addition to chances to network with our professionals, we engage our graduating scholars in Career Conversations as we understand the importance of being prepared when you enter the workforce.
The scholarship is open to students who have gained admission or are eligible for admission into first year full-time undergraduate studies at all public and private universities recognised by the Government of Malaysia. We also welcome first year students of these universities to apply.

The scholarship is tenable for the minimum period required to complete a course leading to a first degree - subject to consistent and excellent academic performance.
All candidates will be required to avail themselves for employment at OCBC Bank. However, if for any reason the Bank decides this is not needed, or is unable to employ the candidate, it will duly release him or her from this requirement.
To apply for the scholarship, applicants must:
