The Astro Scholarship Award

Be the best, BEAT THE REST

Education can transform and inspire people to shape a greater future for themselves, their families, their community and ultimately our country. It is with this firm belief that we established the Astro Scholarship Award for high-achieving students looking to pursue their pre-university, undergraduate and postgraduate studies.

In bringing that together, we also seek to empower students that are studying in Malaysia and abroad.

What our Scholars say...

Elena Syaza

The Astro Scholarship Award came with invaluable opportunities that enabled me to dream big and at the same time, was trusting enough to grant me the responsibility of self-discovery and improvement to better equip myself for the working world. Upon the completion of my studies, I was extensively exposed to the Group’s various businesses and stakeholders, ensuring my foundations were built right. Through these experiences and the connections I was able to make, Astro has played an integral part in developing me to be the best version of myself.

Picture this: you dream of studying in one of the greatest cities on earth, pursuing your passion and learning from some of the most brilliant minds. I had that dream—and the Astro Scholarship helped me make it a reality. But not only was the scholarship a launchpad for me to fulfill these aspirations, it ended up guiding me towards a career at Astro that has been fascinating, challenging and rewarding every step of the way.

The Astro Scholarship allowed me to pursue the degree of my dreams. Despite my university course being out of my comfort zone, Astro gave me the confidence that Going Beyond was the way to go. Being multidisciplinary in nature, my course gave me good exposure in entrepreneurship, art, design and engineering and thus made me an adaptable creative practitioner. Working with different softwares at university equipped me with transferable skills which made the learning curve for my current role smooth. I continue to keep abreast with the development in the fields I studied. My goal is to use all that I have learnt and continue to learn to provide the best for Astro.

Gan Han Yang

This scholarship has opened many doors for me – from the opportunity to pursue my education abroad to starting my career with a fulfilling and intellectually-stimulating role in Product & Portfolio Management. To date, I’ve executed various initiatives to bring content, marketing and technology together to drive our On Demand service forward. The breadth and depth in the work that I do have not only enhanced my skillsets, but also solidified my understanding of the company. My experience in Astro so far has been amazing, with great mentors who have been very patient and supportive towards me every step of the way. The learning curve is steep, and I’m enjoying every part of it.

Natasha Azlan

The Astro Scholarship gave me the opportunity to experience the culture of film in the UK and the culture of UK itself, to meet and establish relationships with people from various parts of the world, and to learn about film from an academic’s perspective. A recent scholar’s leadership programme helped sharpened some of my soft skills, and introduced me to the world of business. In yesteryears I was a mere consumer of films. Today in the Astro workforce, I’m working in the business of film.

The Astro Scholarship has been a life changing event, as it has provided me with a stepping stone for my future career. Without it, I would have not been able to pursue my undergraduate studies in the UK. The programs held by my sponsor to follow up on my progress have given me the opportunity to broaden my skills in various soft skills such as personal development and leadership. Education onto the basics of a business as well as finance were also emphasized on. It has thus helped me hone my professional skills to make me a better employee.
