SAFRA-SIM Global Education Sponsorship

SAFRA members can tap the SAFRA-SIM GE Sponsorship under the SAFRA Education Scheme to further their education. SIM Global Education will sponsor up to a maximum of four Nominated Members, by SAFRA, for each academic year. Shortlisted candidates will be required to attend one or more interview sessions.


The sponsorship award will be used to offset the recipient’s course fees directly for every semester. Students under the sponsorship are required to only pay for the balance course fees billed to them or any other fees not covered by the sponsorship.
