To be eligible to apply you must be of Myanmar origin and:

  1. Accepted on and/or enrolled in a first degree course at an accredited college or university in South East Asia, Hong Kong, or – if with proof of another scholarship/fee waiver – at a university in any other country;

  3. Already studying, or accepted, for a PhD. Please note that PhD Students will be eligible to receive funding for a maximum of four years.

Why should I apply?

Prospect Burma has a long and proud history of supporting Myanmar students in their further studies abroad, with a view of building a brighter democratic future for the Country. Since 1989 we have been supporting students like Suan Khai*, who on completion of her Master’s degree returned to Myanmar to use her expertise to benefit the country.

Suan Khai told us: “Soon after completing my Masters in Public Health, I went back to my native village and a small community-based organization (CBO) was established where I took the role of Programme Coordinator. Currently our CBO is implementing three main programmes: Non-formal Education Programme for marginalized children (40 children aged 6-10 years), Behavioural Change and Development Programme for school children (100 school children of Grade IV from government primary school of the village) and Youth Development Programme where community youths are being empowered by provision of community development training, leadership training, professional development training and youth reading cycle. A mini-library was also set up in the village and we are now planning to develop a community resource centre at the village.”
