The Axiata Young Talent Programme for National Secondary School Programme is now opened for application.

The first level of the programme is for Secondary School, where students who have displayed academic excellence through the Ujian Penilaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR) and outstanding extra-curricular activities are sponsored to complete five years of education.

Why start at 13 years old?

Axiata believes that the five years spent at Secondary School are among the most crucial years of a young individual’s life. It is at this time that they will be exposed to and learn the values and habits that will eventually form the behavioural guidelines for their later years. Our Young Talent Programme is developed with the aim of producing high achieving and competent scholars.


The Young Talent Programme will cover the full five years of the secondary school education, subject to Axiata Foundation’s terms and conditions. The programme’s coverage includes all tuition fees, text books, school uniforms and laptops*. A non-curriculum fund will be provided for students to participate in the school based extra-curricular activities.

In addition to the school related fees, Axiata Foundation will also bear the full cost of the Ax-Factor initiatives.
