The Kuok family are firm believers of social responsibility and have been sharing their wealth and good fortune with the less fortunate. Since 1970, they have been providing financial assistance via the Kuok Foundation to individuals who can’t afford to further their education at various education institutions in Malaysia and Singapore. The foundation was reported to have been set up to alleviate poverty and to reduce economic disparity between the rich and poor communities in Malaysia.

As awarded annually, Kuok Foundation Berhad is ready to extend education scholarships and loan-grants to needy Malaysian students studying or applying to Malaysian and Singaporean public universities for full-time undergraduate programmes for the 2019/2020 academic year.
