IGCSE Scholarship Programme

For meritorious students who desire the opportunity to Study, Create and Inspire

The scholarship application for the Academic Year 2023 intake is now closed.

At Charterhouse Malaysia we recognise that human intelligence is broad. It is not limited just to academic intelligence but also includes social and emotional intelligence. It includes the ability to think deeply and evaluate that thinking, to grasp new situations quickly and, most importantly, to be able to assess personal abilities. Our unique Spectra Smarts programme aims to develop a student’s full range of potential, ensuring that they are well equipped to make their mark in the world.

Our students are encouraged to think and learn independently by engaging in projects in the local community. By devising innovative solutions to social issues, they not only build confidence and leadership skills, but also a deeper sense of social responsibility.

The 4 year scholarship programme is available to meritorious students who desire the opportunity to Study, Create and Inspire at Charterhouse Malaysia, and, who will set a positive example to the academic and communal life of the School, through their enthusiasm, intellectual curiosity, drive and compassion.
