Every year, over 300 Malaysians form part of a distinguished cohort of students at the London School of Economics and Political Science (“LSE”) in various fields of study (across the different academic years). These students represent some of the brightest minds of Malaysia; talented individuals with strong potential to contribute to the development of our nation.
In order to recognize and further promote Malaysian students with extraordinary academic and extra-curricular achievements, in addition to maintaining ties with the wider Malaysian community, an annual merit award has been established. Dubbed the Yayasan Khazanah - LSE Malaysian Alumni Book Prize (“Book Prize”), it is open to undergraduate Malaysian students at LSE.
The Book Prize is awarded to the most deserving Malaysian student in their first and second year of study respectively, valued at GBP 500 each. The Book Prize is fully sponsored by Yayasan Khazanah and is administered by the LSE Alumni Society of Malaysia (“LSEASM”).
We are proud to announce the Book Prize winners as follows:
