Lions-EASB Scholarship Project

The Lions Club of Kuala Lumpur North and Subang Jaya, together with state assemblyman of Subang Jaya Hannah Yeoh, recently announced the Lions-EASB Scholarship Project that they wish to share with the future leaders of our country.

Also present at the press conference was Country/Program Director of the Hope Worldwide organization where together with the Lions Club, they are determined to give away all 300 scholarship placements and more to deserving students. With neither required paybacks nor ties to a company, this scholarship project enables successful applicants to pursue a couple of offered undergraduate programs at highly distinguished universities in UK; Queen Margaret University (QMU), University of Wales Institute Cardiff (UWIC) and East Asia Instituts of Management (EASB).

“Education is a process which ventures in transforming people’s lives, instilling in them better ethics to become responsible and caring leaders of the future. Education is something that even a few million dollars can’t buy,” stressed Mr. Sam Leong, Past District Governor of Lions Clubs International , District 308B1, enthusiastically.

Professor Dr. Andrew Chua, who is the head of the East Asia Institute of Management’s Principal, is offering a 70% scholarship paid course fee, to various degree courses in the universities mentioned above. Their very intentions being to help the less fortunate and bright Malaysian students get a degree which will ultimately change their lives. Mr. Leong expresses his sincerest appreciation Professor Dr. Andrew Chua, for making all this happen. With their joint effort, now the middle classed, bright students of Malaysia can comfortably afford a tertiary education.

According to Mr. Leong, there is indeed a very high possibility of graduates landing a job in Singapore, as EASB has a strong track record of past graduates scoring a job with companies in Singapore. He added on as well that the competitiveness in the international Singaporean culture will in turn help motivate Malaysian students to study hard as there they will be challenged to compete with only the best.

A way towards a better, more fulfilling life starts right here; education. Thus, it is in the best interest of the Hope organization and Lions Club to collaborate to reach out to as many middle, working and lower class communities out there who are in desperate need for a tertiary education.

“This is a very noble project that the Lions Club has came up with, as it is not only practical and useful but it will potentially change the lives of 300 people,” commented Y.B. Hannah Yeoh, ADUN of Subang Jaya, who organized this press conference. She also said that she hopes more people will apply for this scholarship as Lions Club is the first club so far offering this scholarship, without asking for anything in return. In addition to that, this scholarship will definitely lighten the burden of working class parents who have to work numerous jobs just to fork out a ridiculous huge amount of money just to see them qualified as a professional.

Application forms are available at Hannah Yeoh’s service centre which is located at 24A, Jalan SS14/1A, 47500 Subang Jaya. Applications can also be submitted through the centre. All qualified deserving students are encouraged and welcomed to apply for this scholarship program.
