The Scholarship Programme of KT Care Foundation works to increase access to education for youth in the Foundation’s priority intervention areas in Myanmar. Due to their families’ financial constraints, many students face significant challenges in attending school regularly and affording appropriate scholastic supplies. KT Care supports students by providing initial tuition, stationery and school furniture.
The Scholarship Programme provides financial support for 3-5 years to disadvantaged students with high academic achievement, to pursue studies at national universities. In addition, some scholarship students also work as interns at KT Care Foundation as part of their training.
