YH2 Capital Scholarship


Scholarship details


The YH2 Capital Scholarship programme is launched in 2019 and is fully funded by the Co-Founders and Co-CEOs of YH2 Capital Management Pte. Ltd. in Singapore. The programme offers one fully funded, bond-free Scholarship each year for undergraduate study at Magdalene College, University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom. The selection committee of the Scholarship is looking for an outstanding Malaysian candidate with exemplary academic and personal qualities who will not have the full financial means to pursue a degree at the University of Cambridge without the help of the Scholarship.

The Scholarship will not impose any bond on the Scholar being awarded. The Donors intend the Scholar to be free to choose their place of residency and their career post-graduation from the University of Cambridge. The key objective of the Donors is to offer the Scholar lacking financial means an opportunity to not only attend Cambridge University but to subsequently pursue his/her career aspirations without constraints.

Malaysian students studying overseas, especially those on ASEAN scholarships studying in Singapore, are welcome to apply for the Scholarship.


Applicant must meet all the below requirements

  • You must be a citizen of Malaysia (Malaysian passport holders).
  • You are studying for an undergraduate degree leading to a bachelor’s degree.
  • You must have stated Magdalene as your College choice on your academic application and you must have received a conditional offer of a place at Magdalene College in the University of Cambridge upon application. The award is conditional upon the fulfilment of the conditional offer. Following receipt of application, a check will be made to confirm that the applicant has been offered a conditional place at the Magdalene College.
  • You are applying to study for a course within Group 1 to 4 (SEE FULL LIST BELOW), except for Architecture, Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Manufacturing Engineering, Management Studies, Medicine and Veterinary Medicine. (Please note, the Scholar will not be able to change to one of the excluded subjects during the course of his/her degree. Doing so would result in the withdrawal of the scholarship.)
  • The Selection Committee will comprise of five members; the Master of Magdalene College, the Senior Tutor of Magdalene College, a further Fellow in a humanities subject and the two Donors.
  • The Selection Committee will assess applications based on financial needs, academic record, the ability to make a significant contribution to the Magdalene community, the proposed field of study within the University, testimonials as well as interviews carried out.
  • The applicant should be one:
    • who has a record of academic excellence consistent with the proposed field of study;
    • who can also demonstrate the potential to make a significant contribution to the broader life of Magdalene College;
    • who can articulate the personal benefit he/she believes this opportunity would afford him/her; and
    • would not be able to accept a place at the College without financial assistance (please note that a means test will be applied).
