The Genting Malaysia Scholarship has opened up my world to endless possibilities. The financial relief has allowed me to pursue my field of interest without imposing any financial burden to my parents. Genting Malaysia’s facility-related subsidiaries and various engineering divisions have served as the ideal platform for me to enhance my profession and technical skills. I feel thankful for being able to gain a wide array of experience just from one company.

My colleagues are friendly and constantly motivate me to achieve greater heights in life. The highlight of my working career in Genting so far is being able to travel to Germany to discuss a project. An opportunity like this truly exceeded my expectations as it shows the company’s active effort to groom young engineers like myself. This scholarship goes beyond simply providing financial support; it is a great way to learn and discover.

The Genting Malaysia Scholarship has opened up a myriad of opportunities for me to grow and learn. I’m forever grateful to Genting Malaysia for allowing me to pursue my education in a reputable university and giving me moral encouragement throughout my academic years.

Upon joining the company for less than a year, I was fortunate enough to be one of the two scholars who were sent to Germany for a technical inspection and field trip. Despite the lack of experience, we were given such an incredible opportunity to play a key role within the team, showing Genting’s commitment to groom its employees and scholars.

This scholarship has led me to a full-time position in the The scholarship has lead me to a full-time position in Theme Park development team. I’m elated to be entrusted with various responsibilities and opportunities to grow as a Genting employee.

My ambition is to become an Accountant. However, my family is not able to support my tertiary education due to health issues after I completed my STPM. To continue my education was a dream as I had to start working to earn an income to support my family. When I was informed that my application for Genting Malaysia Scholarship was granted, I was so delighted. I felt very grateful that not only I can continue my studies, but I can further pursue my ambition – to be an Accountant.

The offer from Genting Malaysia had eased my family’s burden and given me a new direction in life. Thank you Genting Malaysia.

Genting Malaysia, I want to say a humongous thank you for choosing me as the recipient of Genting Malaysia Scholarship. I’m truly grateful for this opportunity. This scholarship would not only be a financial blessing, but also increase my overall confidence.

Life always throws curveballs but this award has become a reminder that I'm capable of overcoming challenges and achieving greatness. I’d graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Mathematics with Actuarial Science from University of Southampton and I am now working as a business analyst with Genting Malaysia.
