The development of human capital is another priority of Felda Holdings' CSR initiatives. This benefits the community as well as propels Felda Holdings' expansion plans by bringing us in direct contact with future professionals we intend to employ as we extend our global reach.
The Felda Scholarship was initially a joint initiative with FELDA when it was established in 2006. It enables bright and upcoming Malaysians from all backgrounds to pursue tertiary studies internationally in diverse fields.
In 2006, arising from interviews held nationwide, we awarded scholarships to 52 deserving youths. In 2007, FELDA directly sponsored 39 students whilst Felda Holdings awarded scholarships to another seven intending to pursue our preferred courses of Biotechnology, Information Technology/Computer Science, Business Administration, Finance/Accounting and Actuarial Science.
