What current Maxis scholars say:
“Maxis Scholarship Programme had given me the opportunity to pursue my passion in Computer Science. Throughout the programme, I was also given an internship opportunity, where I was able to learn and understand how computing is applied to innovation and transformation. I would like to thank Maxis for giving me the opportunity to advance closer to my dream.”Choo Carmen, Maxis Women In Tech Scholar, studying Computer Science at Monash University Malaysia
“I was looking for a scholarship to alleviate the financial burden of my family, as pursuing a STEM degree is very costly, especially from a reputable university. I came across the Maxis Scholarship Programme and it was a golden opportunity. The experience has left an imprint as to how much Maxis values its talent due to their close collaboration with us.Roy Ng Zhan Lok, Maxis Tech Scholar, studying Mechanical-Electronic (Mechatronic) & Robotics Engineering at Monash University Malaysia
“I was thrilled to be selected as a Maxis scholar last year and to have the opportunity to build my skills in the tech field. Apart from the financial aid, internships offer exposure to the latest technology, with support from supervisors, fellow scholars, and the Young Talent Team to become the best versions of themselves. They equip us with new knowledge that can help us unleash our potential.”Farah Dayana Durra Binti Jamil, Maxis Women In Tech scholar, studying Computer Science and Information Technology (Software Engineering), Universiti Malaya
