A Scholarship for Refugees in Malaysia

The Fugee HiEd Scholarship supports the higher education dreams of refugees and stateless persons in Malaysia. We seek applicants who excel academically, are proactive, and show a genuine commitment to bettering their communities.

Scholars are selected based on merit and their passion for education, choice of career and improving communities. We promote refugees to be self-reliant and proactive and hence we search for these qualities in potential Scholars.
