Supplementary Grant Program Asia

This call for proposals is now closed.

The Supplementary Grant Program Asia provides partial financial assistance to Burmese students to study at accredited university degree programs outside of Burma. The program was originally established to address the needs of Burmese students, both inside and outside of the country, whose college education was disrupted due to political instability in the country.

For individuals who are studying or intend to study in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia, only those studying in the humanities and social sciences are eligible to apply—with preference given to graduate study in the following fields: public health, social policy, social work, education, environmental policy, public policy, public administration, economic policy, and law.

For individuals who are studying or intend to study in other parts of the world, including Asia, the above restrictions do not apply, although preference is still given to graduate studies in the social sciences or humanities.
