The Astro Scholarship Award

About The Astro Scholarship Award

Education can transform and inspire people to shape a greater future for themselves, their families, our community and ultimately our country. It is with this firm belief that we established the Astro Scholarship Award for high-achieving students looking to pursue their pre-university, undergraduate and postgraduate studies.

At Astro, we aspire to empower our scholars to cultivate their dreams of pursuing excellence in education and to end with a bright future. It is for this very function that our scholarship recipients will not need to worry about their travel, living and studying expenses whether in Malaysia or abroad.
