Elena Cooke Education Fund Scholarship Application Online
Recognising Miss Cooke as an educationist par excellence, the Sunway Education Group (SEG), which is owned and governed by the Jeffrey Cheah Education Foundation, has donated RM500,000 worth of scholarships to the Elena Cooke Education Fund.
THE school building may be gone but the alumnae of Bukit Bintang Girls School (BBGS) will carry on the legacy of their alma mater that is celebrating its 120th anniversary this year.
In memory of their longest-serving principal Elena Maud Cooke (pic) who passed away in May last year, the alumnae have established a scholarship fund to help needy students pursue Form Six and tertiary studies.
Priority will be given to students from orphanages and homes as the late Cooke believed that quality education empowers the marginalised.
In fact, she had wanted to become a medical doctor and establish an orphanage.
However, Cooke devoted her life towards making BBGS a premier girls’ school in Kuala Lumpur.
The Elena Cooke Education Fund is now offering scholarships for selected professional and tertiary programmes at the Sunway Education Group (Sunway University and Sunway College).
Recognising Cooke as an educationist par excellence, the group, which is owned and governed by the Jeffrey Cheah Foundation, has donated RM500,000 worth of scholarships to the fund.
The scholarships will cover tuition as well as living expenses and costs of books.
Applicants should be proficient in English, have good results and with parents earning an income of below RM50,000 annually.
Applications must be sent no later than two weeks after the release of the SPM or STPM results, depending on the courses applied for.
Submit your application before 5pm, 03 April 2019 .
Late applications will not be accepted and only shortlisted applicants will be notified.
