The Krüger Foundation announced a USD 40,000 scholarship program for Burmese students applying to study at the University of the People (UoPeople). The grant provides ten full scholarships for promising students who come from and are resident in Myanmar to study at a leading online university based in the United States.
High school graduates in Myanmar are invited to apply for the Krüger Myanmar Scholarship Program, which covers the costs of a four-year Bachelor’s course in either Business Administration or Computer Science.
The application process consists of two parts, including:
