The Tune Libra Scholarship offers deserving and academically excellent students a world-class education at British boarding school, Epsom College in Malaysia. Reinforcing the commitment to excellence in education, the fund provides RM20 million in scholarships.

Founded by Tan Sri Tony Fernandes, Datuk Kamaruddin Meranun and Mr Lim Kian Onn in September 2016, the fund aims to help committed and talented students who would otherwise not have this opportunity by providing scholarships to attend Epsom College in Malaysia.

“The Epsom College education is like no other. Students receive not only a quality education to prepare them for the best universities around the world, but also the opportunity to develop extra-curricular excellence in a caring and supportive community. We aim to shape students beyond the classroom, by instilling ambition, humility, and leadership.” said Martin George, Headmaster of Epsom College in Malaysia.

If you’ve ever wanted to study at the Epsom College, or you’re interested in taking your A-Levels – this might be for you. The Tune Libra Scholarship is divided into two categories: Seed Scholarships (A-Levels) and Branch Scholarships (IGSCES & A-Levels).

Seed scholarships are full scholarships, awarded to students applying for:

  • 18-month A Level Programme (January intake)
  • 2-year A Level Programme (September intake)

Seed Scholarships are awarded based on academic merit and financial hardship. To qualify for the scholarship, applicants will need to secure straight As in the SPM exams and iGCSE, have participated, and excel in, co-curricular activities, and need to prove financial hardship.

Branch Scholarships are partial scholarships awarded to students applying for:

  • 2-year iGCSE (Year 10 & 11)
  • 18-month A Level Programme (January intake)
  • 2-year A Level Programme (September intake)

Branch scholarships are awarded on academic merit and financial need. Interested scholars will need to show strong academic performance and the need for financial assistance.

Applications for Seed (full) and Branch (partial) scholarships are now open for September 2017 and January 2018 intake.
