About the Donor
LBKM (Lembaga Biasiswa Kenangan Maulud) has come a long way since its inception, evolving from a small but relentless bursary-disbursing organization into a renowned bursary institution and a pillar of the Malay and Muslim community.
LBKM continue to strive to remain a relevant beacon of light in the community without compromising on the building blocks and the virtues which LBKM founding fathers envisioned.
The establishment of this Scholarship is to support Singapore’s Committee on the Future Economy (CFE) recommendations and to encourage more Malay students to advance their digital capabilities.
The Scholarship will be awarded to Malay undergraduate students in NUS School of Computing. Three scholarships would be given out per academic year.

There is no bond attached to the Scholarship.
