She told us: “Prospect Burma scholarship is the only scholarship has longest contribution in supporting Burmese students. Without this scholarship, many of us will never achieve our goals in rebuilding Burma. Now I have had the opportunity to study anthropology on Burma and which is crucial discipline and yet rarely studied by Burmese. This scholarship has allowed me to not only maintain focus on my studies and research, but to also help me continue to work for my community and country, with my passion of humanitarian activities. All of which make be able to take part in rebuilding Burma for its peaceful and democratic future. Thank you.”
