The Yeap Scholarship

Applications are closed   Local students   Current students

The Yeap Scholarship aims for recipients to develop a deeper understanding, engagement and appreciation of Asian cultures and opportunities. To achieve this, the scholarship offers students the opportunity to participate in a semester exchange to study at Swinburne's Sarawak campus, followed by a 4 to 12 week internship at a business based in Malaysia.

This opportunity will allow scholarship recipients to immerse themselves in the flavours and culture of Kuching, as well as the opportunity to live and socialise with local students whilst completing course subjects. Internships will be determined on a case-by-case basis for individual students.
