Yayasan AFS scholarship

Yayasan ABM was set up by Yayasan AFS Antarabudaya Malaysia to assist students in need of some funds to offset part of the programme fees.  In the past, a sum of between RM3,000 – RM6,000 has been awarded to successful candidates applying to go for a Year Programme to non-native English speaking countries e.g. Latin American countries, Europe, Asia, etc.

Each year, Yayasan AFS Antarabudaya Malaysia sends more than 200 exchange students abroad for year, semester and short term programs (including programs that focus on language study and community service), and welcomes more than 100 exchange students from other countries to Malaysia.

Who can apply?

Form 5 students applying for the Year Programme to non-native English speaking countries.

What are the criteria?

Applicants have to be from a very modest-salary bracket family and in genuine need of a subsidy. Proof of income has to be produced upon request. Candidates need to obtain strong grades and engage actively in school co-curriculum. Priority will be given to first-time applicants in the family as compared to those whose siblings have enjoyed assistance from the organization before.
