The Jeffrey Cheah Foundation, founded on the fundamental premise of giving back to society, uses operating surpluses towards granting scholarships and research grants ensuring that sustainable quality education is a priority. To date, RM270 million and growing has been disbursed in scholarships to thousands of deserving students based on merit, talent and need.
