Norway adds 10 new scholarships for Myanmar students to study at AIT in 2013

The Government of Norway has increased by ten the total number of full scholarships it will fund for Myanmar students to study at the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) in the August 2013 semester.

The head of AIT’s External Relations and Communications Office, Mr. Ahmed Amjad Ali, confirmed on April 16 that Norway will support a total of 50 Myanmar students to enroll at AIT in 2013, up from the original pledge of 40 scholarships for this year.
The increase to the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ program, valued at Thai Baht 160 million and lasting from 2012-2014, boosts the overall three-year commitment to 130 scholarships, up from 120.

Following announcement of the scholarship agreement signed in April 2012, over 800 prospective students in Myanmar applied for entry to the program.  Last year, following a rigorous testing process, a select group of scholarship recipients gained entry to AIT.  The first batch is currently completing their first year of postgraduate study.

Overall, the Norwegian scholarship covers all tuition and registration fees, research grant, bursary, accommodations, return air-ticket, as well as costs for a pre-entry bridging and pre-bridging programs designed to raise entrants’ academic proficiency and ensure that they meet the rigorous admissions requirements of AIT.
