  1. Hello!
    Do you know Burma?This country condition is so bad.I am CDM student. Now I attending online NUG school.I don’t go school.I like justice and democracy. I really want scholarship. Becoz my mom has mind dease.Our family are so poor.If you got scholarship, I actually guess.Now I learning another languages and applying scholarship. My future dream is tourist guide.I want go USA.My dream is expensive although I so try learn.Please read my message. Thank you so much.

    1. Hello! I understand your situation and dream. It’s difficult to pursue a dream, especially one that requires so much financial assistance such as going to the United States. Burma is currently facing political instability and economic problems. This can make it hard for students like you to get scholarships that would help finance your future studies or dreams of becoming a tourist guide in the US.

      However, there are still ways for you to achieve your goal of pursuing higher education abroad despite Burma’s current condition. There are organizations devoted solely towards helping people from economically impoverished countries attend college in the USA or Europe, such as EDUFAculty International Foundation (EIF). EIF gives out full scholarships to promising applicants in need of financial assistance. Moreover, many universities around the world have set up international student funds designed specifically for this purpose; some even provide full tuition coverage depending on academic excellence and other criteria established by their respective school administrations. It would be worth researching these options if you’re seriously considering pursuing higher education overseas due to limited access at home due to poverty or conflict-related crises such as those happening with Burma right now (e.g., military coups and ethnic conflicts).

      In addition, don’t forget about potential grants available through local non-profit organizations dedicated towards improving educational opportunities in developing countries like yours – grants which could potentially cover not only tuition fees but also living costs associated with relocating abroad for further studies (e.g., airfare/transportation expenses). You should research online databases featuring scholarship information targeting international students; this will give you an idea on where apply so use it wisely! Lastly, don’t forget about private donors too – they often offer one-time donations covering study expenses for outstanding young individuals looking into furthering their education elsewhere despite hardships back home; do note however that private donor funding sources may be harder find than other ones mentioned above since they’re more localized/targeted rather than publically advertised online sets applications open everyone regardless of nationality etc.(just think outside the box!).

      All things considered: never let financial barriers stop from achieving your dreams! Research all potential options carefully and exhaust every single possible avenue before coming up with a plan B; after all, if at first try doesn’t succeed try again – keep trying until something works out! Good luck 🙂

    1. Earning a scholarship to study abroad can be a great way to gain exposure to different cultures and perspectives, while also providing financial support for tuition fees. The first step in the process is understanding the different types of scholarships available and researching which ones best match your academic goals.

      There are both need-based and merit-based scholarships available, with some programs having specific eligibility criteria like nationality or program of study. Many schools partner with organizations to create special programs targeting particular professions or areas of study. Depending on your country’s resources, there may also be government grants available that you can apply for that will substantially cover tuition expenses related to studying abroad.

      In addition, it’s always helpful to set up an online portfolio where you can showcase your skills and accomplishments with potential scholarship evaluators by including strong supporting documents such as transcripts, letters of recommendation, essays or statements of purpose. If you have any additional extracurricular activities such as work experience or volunteer hours listed within your profile that demonstrate leadership qualities this will strengthen your application further. It’s important to stand out from other candidates so make sure you make the most out of the information included in each submission!

      Finally, be sure to read through all conditions associated with any awards received prior submitting an application so you understand if there are any obligations attached (such as returning home for internships). Good luck!
