  1. To whom it may concern,
    I’m looking for many scholarship programmes for the burmese refugees. But, I cannot find many. I’m also a refugee in Malaysia. I finished B.Econ (Economics) from Yangon Institute of Economics in Burma. I want to continue M.A (Political Science). So, could you please advise me how to try for the opportunity to study master of political science.

    Best regards,

  2. I forgot to suscribe my activities inside and outside Burma. I was an English teacher of high school students in Burma. I worked as a teacher for six years in Burma. Then, I fled to Thailand because of my political background inside Burma. I gave a class my students about human rights. I was arrested twice in Burma.

    I worked in NGOs in three pagodas pass in Thai-Burma border as a teacher. Now, I’m working in NLD (LA) Malaysia as an in charge in education programme and also as a teacher.

    I want to be a teacher in Yangon University when we can go back to Burma some times. I want to teach political science to university students. To be a qualified teacher is the greatest ambition in my life. Now, I’m waiting for an opportunities to be able to study master of political science.

    Best regards,
    Kyaw Kyaw Min
