Jardine Matheson established an educational trust, the Jardine Foundation, in 1982 to mark its 150th anniversary. Since then, over 260 scholars have been granted awards to enable them to study in preferred Colleges at Oxford and Cambridge Universities in the United Kingdom. Scholars have come from a number of countries and territories in which the Jardine Matheson Group operates, including Cambodia, mainland China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.

Achievements in non-curricular activities, including sports, and their level of community involvement shall be taken into consideration.
The Jardine Foundation awards Jardine Scholarships annually to students so they can attend education, at their primarily selected colleges. Since 1982, the foundation has awarded over 260 outstanding students from a number of countries and territories in which the Jardine Matheson Group operates.
The foundation aims to assist scholars who have the potential to become outstanding citizens with a high commitment to the community. In addition to the scholarships for undergraduate studies, the foundation also considers a limited number of applications for scholarships in postgraduate studies.
