YSD Environment Scholarship for Postgraduate Studies 2017
Yayasan Sime Darby (YSD) began supporting the Reforestation and Rehabilitation of Orangutan Habitats in Northern Ulu Segama project since 2008, committing RM25 million over a period of 10 years. 

A visit to Northern Ulu Segama (now known as the Bukit Piton Forest Reserve) in December 2016 revealed that the trees planted in 2008 under the project have not only been flourishing with healthy canopy growth but was also seen to harbour Orangutan nests.
Witnessing this, YSD chairman Tun Musa Hitam announced that a scholarship will be offered to a Malaysian student to pursue a postgraduate study in a local university on the effects of a rehabilitated forest on Orangutan populations in the area.
The postgraduate study could further strengthen knowledge to encourage conservation efforts in vulnerable but critical areas for endangered wildlife. 

Application for the scholarship will be open from 1st March 2017. Click here to find out more about the criteria and application process.
