The US-ASEAN Business Council Institute (USABCI) created the USABCI Myanmar Scholarship Fund to alleviate financial hardships currently confronted by Myanmar students enrolled in accredited US universities due to the current economic crisis in Myanmar.
In the 2022-23 pilot year, the Scholarship will provide $5,000 merit scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students from Myanmar enrolled in U.S. higher education institutions. Scholarships may be used to defray academic costs required to achieve a degree, including tuition, fees, books, supplies, and equipment.
The USABCI Myanmar Scholarship will help lay a stronger foundation for the future of Myanmar’s youth – the country’s best asset to alleviate its current challenges.
The USABCI Myanmar Scholarship Fund is made possible by the strong support of its founding Chair, the late Madeleine Albright, and its initial Patron, Ambassador Derek Mitchell; fundraising efforts of its founding partners, US-ASEAN Business Council, US ICT Council for Myanmar, and Albright Stonebridge Group; an initial endowment from Chevron and contributions from Meta, The Asia Group, BowerGroupAsia, McLarty Associates and other friends of Myanmar.
