MAXIS recently presented a total of RM5.68mil to outstanding young Malaysian students through its Scho–larship for Excellence Awards (MSEA).

The move was part of its ongoing commitment towards education, talent and leadership development.

The recipients — 22 undergraduates and 5 post-graduates — will go on to pursue courses in their chosen fields at top universities, both locally and abroad.

The MSEA was presented by Maxis chairman Raja Tan Sri Arshad Raja Tun Uda and witnessed by the recipients’ families as well as Maxis chief executive officer Sandip Das, members of the Maxis senior leadership team, the MSEA selection panel and university representatives.

The recipients were selected by a panel of judges which comprised INTI-UC Laureate International University deputy vice-chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Ibrahim Ahmad Bajunid, Higher Education Ministry Higher Education Leadership Academy (Akept) director Prof Datuk Dr Roziah Omar and University Malaya’s Centre for Industrial Training and Relations director Assoc Prof Dr Stefanie Pillai.

Arshad said, “The MSEA underscores Maxis’ commitment to education and ultimately, nation-building.

“Contributing towards building the nation’s talent pool is one area that is close to our hearts. Our scholarships, aimed at our employees’ and customers’ children are designed to provide talented and outstanding young Malaysians with the opportunity to realise their fullest potential.”

During the ceremony, a forum titled ‘Nurturing Tomorrow’s Leaders’ was held.

It was moderated by Priya Narayanan, a MSEA scholar from the 2009 batch of recipients. The panellists for the forum — Sandip, Roziah and Stefanie — spoke about leadership qualities, nurturing talent and the role of corporate citizens in contributing towards developing the country’s talent pool.

Through the scholarship, several recipients have gained admittance to prestigious universities in Malaysia and other parts of the world, including Universiti Malaya, Universiti Sains Malaysia, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Monash University, International Medical University, the London School of Economics, King’s College of London, University of Oxford, Imperial College of London, Columbia University and Harvard Business School, in the various fields of their choice.

One of the five post-graduate recipients, William Nee, represented his fellow post-graduate MSEA scholarship recipients and gave a speech at the event.

“The scholarship has relieved my financial pressure of continuing my studies at the London School of Economics (LSE) and allowed me to fully concentrate on my education,” he said. William is currently pursuing his MSc in Law and Accounting at the LSE and aspires to become a judge.

Another undergraduate recipient, Razin Rozman, said, “This is our chance to grab the opportunities that are finally within reach, so make the best of them.” Razin is a BSc in Business Management undergraduate at King’s College in the United Kingdom.

The Maxis MSEA was initiated in 2005, in an effort to nurture a forward-thinking and progressive new generation of Malaysians. It is open to young and outstanding Malaysians who have gained admittance to top universities, both locally and abroad.

To-date, including the 27 recipients today, Maxis has committed more than RM37.9 million in scholarships to a total of 209 recipients.

Apart from the MSEA, Maxis has carried out a number of education and community based activities with the aim to bring a positive impact on the lives of the communities in which it operates. These include the Maxis Cyberkids programme and Mobile Content Challenge.

The former has provided ICT training to more than 8,500 students and teachers in over 1,500 schools. In conjunction with its 10th anniversary this year, the programme will be extended to special needs schools.

The Mobile Content Challenge is a content developer programme which encourages home-grown creative talent and help them take ideas to commercial launch. The programme has successfully generated over 450 new ideas.
