Engyin May, a Skyline College International Student studying Allied Health, has received the nationally competitive USABCI Myanmar Scholarship of $5,000. According to the Institute of International Education (IIE), in the “2022-23 pilot year, the Scholarship provided $5,000 merit scholarships to 55 undergraduate and graduate students from Myanmar enrolled in U.S. higher education institutions.”

IIE writes, “The US-ASEAN Business Council Institute (USABCI) created the USABCI Myanmar Scholarship Fund to alleviate financial hardships currently confronted by Myanmar students enrolled in accredited US universities due to the current economic crisis in Myanmar.” In the 2023-2024 year, The US-ASEAN Business Council Institute continued their work and Ms. May is one beneficiary.

Engyin wants to encourage other students to apply to this and other scholarships and grants; she states, “Receiving this scholarship brings me immense joy as it aids me in reaching my goals. Therefore, I want to encourage you to apply for this scholarship and grab any opportunity that comes your way. Believe in yourself, and good things take time to happen.”
