KFC M’sia Launches Scholarship Programme To Help B40 Students

RM2.1mil will be set aside for 30 students under the programme.
We normally associate KFC with its crispy fried chicken and of course, the famous tagline ‘It’s finger lickin’ good’. But did you know that the fast food restaurant chain also gives out financial aid for underprivileged students?

Yup, you read it right. KFC Malaysia has actually launched its own scholarship programme specially for Malaysians wanting to further their studies but do not have the financial means to do so.
