The SmartEdu Scholarship Program has greatly helped me to pursue my bachelor’s degree without having to worry about my financial problems. My sister had been working in a coffee shop to help save money for me to pursue my university dreams after Grade 12 because my parents could not afford it. However, this scholarship has helped me reduce the burden on my sister on top of having extra allowances to buy additional materials for my studies.

Besides financial support, this scholarship has driven me to study even harder and improve my English because all of us are encouraged to use English to communicate amongst scholars. I also feel that I am a lot more courageous and confident in myself due to volunteer work and social activities carried out by Smart Axiata, which I have never done before.

It is so meaningful to have received a SmartEdu scholarship which will enable me to achieve my future goals.
