KPMG ASEAN Scholarship for Undergraduate Students
South-East Asia is changing rapidly. The countries of ASEAN are experiencing rapid growth, and the new breed of accounting, advisory and tax professionals need to be conversant with working across cultures and borders.

KPMG’s ASEAN Scholarship is a new scholarship programme for South East Asia students established in 2015 as the first regional scholarship for young undergraduates looking to get a head-start in their careers with a professional services firm. This programme is supported by KPMG offices in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand.

At the heart of KPMG are our people. We are constantly on the look-out for bright and talented people like you, because we know you have the potential and the ability to change the future for the better. Your dreams and your ambitions will have a place to flourish at KPMG because we are interested in stretching your potential and accelerating your professional success.

As a KPMG ASEAN scholar, you can look forward to diverse learning and development opportunities and cross-border exposures through a structured programme which consists of three pillars:
  • Professional Development
    To help you build core competencies and skills and develop professionally through induction programmes, structured internships in regional firms and mentorships by Partners, amongst other people development initiatives.
  • Strategic Engagement
    To help you build breadth and depth of knowledge across sectors and borders through interactions with KPMG leaders who will share valuable insights about their careers and outlook of the various industries and countries.
