Paukphaw Scholarship Project

Background

Myanmar and China are neighboring country, having long-term friendship. In January 2013, CFPA sent a team to do the needs assessment in Myanmar. The team has visited Myanmar governmental departments, Chinese enterprises in Myanmar, Monasteries, Universities, Villages, Media, Chinese, Embassy, Economic Counselor, and overseas Chinese. A report on Myanmar Assessment was completed and attracted the attention of Chinese government and all social sectors. After the assessment, CFPA decided to introduce its flagship program of university student scholarship into Myanmar, which is called the Paukphaw Scholarship Project. The program aims to provide financial aid and capacity building for Myanmar university students in need and enhance the P2P relationship between Myanmar and China.
