MACC Scholarship exclusively for Malaysian students

Want to study in the land down under? Then the MACC scholarship is something just that you need!

The Malaysia-Australia Colombo Plan Commemoration (MACC) scholarships provide an opportunity for students from Malaysia and Australia to experience each other's cultures through education. There are scholarships available that can cover full or partial tuition fees for Malaysian and Australian students who want to study in each other's countries. More than 250 students have benefited from these MACC Scholarships, which are worth a total of more than RM5 million.

The Malaysian Australian Alumni Council (MAAC), a national organisation for Malaysian Alumni Associations of Australian Universities and other higher education institutions, is in charge of and oversees the MACC Scholarship Program with the assistance of the Australian High Commission in Kuala Lumpur, the Australian Trade Commission (Austrade), and the Australian Department of Education, Skills, and Employment (DESE).

What's unique about the MACC scholarship?

The MACC Scholarship was created to promote Australian and Malaysian universities and higher education institutions and to foster a two-way exchange of scholars between Malaysia and Australia. In addition to creating possibilities for intellectual contact between Malaysia and Australia, the scholarship seeks to improve and develop bilateral connections between the two nations.
