BM AgriCare Education Fund Scholarship Awards 2022

Each year, Behn Meyer AgriCare awards selected talented students in the field of agriculture with its Education Fund Scholarship. This year, three deserving undergraduate students were granted the scholarship, which covers tuition fee, accommodation, living expenses, as well as internship and job opportunities with Behn Meyer.

The students are:
• Siti Nor Aina Binti Mohammad Shekhidi (Bachelor of Education in Agricultural Science, Universiti Putra Malaysia)
• Jeeveintheren A/L Nadarajan (Bachelor of Science in Microbiology, Universiti Putra Malaysia)
• Dina Deanna Binti Omar Nahu (Bachelor of Science in Plant Biotechnology, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia)

To celebrate their achievement, BM AgriCare hosted a luncheon session for the scholars and their families at the New World Hotel, Petaling Jaya on 1st April 2022. Also invited to join the luncheon to share their experiences with this year’s scholarship recipients were past years’ scholars (refer below), and AgriCare senior employees.

Previous scholars were:
• Ummu Qatrunnada Liyana Binti Kamaruddin - 2020
• Thibashini A/P Selva Kumar (unable to attend) - 2020
• Mohamad Amirul Bin Hasan - 2018
• Viemall A/L Kanan (unable to attend) - 2018

In his opening speech, Mr Teo Tee Seng, the Managing Director of Behn Meyer AgriCare (M) Sdn Bhd, talked about the objective of this Education Fund Scholarship Award, then touched on how the company is looking forward to guiding these youth as they develop.

“Behn Meyer Education Fund Scholarship was initiated five years ago with the aim to support the development of agricultural science and technology in Malaysia. We collaborate with public universities, and sometimes we even go to Career Fairs to engage with future leaders and pull in young talents. Today, we are gathered with our scholars from this year and the previous batches to celebrate their achievements. I want to tell our scholars that now, you are a part of Behn Meyer. We want to support you not just during your internship and college life but also along your career pathway “, said Mr Teo.

The scholarship award recipient for the Year 2018, En Mohamad Amirul bin Hasan, spoke about how the scholarship helped him in his academic journey. “The main reason behind applying for this scholarship was because I wanted to ease the burden of my parents, who are now in their 60s, especially my mother who has been diagnosed with a heart disease. I want to thank the Behn Meyer AgriCare Group for choosing me to be one of the scholarship recipients. It really is an honour for me, and it has helped us a lot.”

During the sharing session, parents expressed that they are confident that their children will be able to thrive more in agriculture with the support of Behn Meyer AgriCare. Other scholars also shared how the internship and scholarship had helped open more doors of opportunities for them to learn and grow in the industry.

At Behn Meyer, we would like to congratulate our scholars again on receiving the BM AgriCare Education Fund Scholarship Awards 2022. We hope to have another gathering session like this in 2024 so more scholars can join us and share their experiences as they #ShineWithAgriCare.
