Great Eastern Supremacy Scholarship Award 2015
Great Eastern Supremacy Scholarship Award is one of the leading programmes in the insurance industry. Every year since 1998, we have been the platform to almost a hundred deserving, talented, young Malaysian to acquire their dreams. The total amount of scholarship offered by Great Eastern Life to date is over RM9.3 million to 133 recipients. They dared to dream, to be different, and took the lead in realizing those dreams. In addition to that, this is also our way of nurturing the best talents for our company's future leaders.

Here, we do not just provide great career opportunities for people; we also nurture, care and develop them from young - even before they begin their journey towards success.

Since  2012,  we are changing the  way we do things around here because We are no longer a life insurance company, we are a LIFE company.

Our scholarship award is also changing. We want young, talented Malaysians who dream to be different to be part of our supremacy scholarship program.
