PCP Grads Funded by Zomia

Zomia Signs MOU to Support PCP Students

Zomia and the Pre-Collegiate Program of Yangon (PCP) are excited to announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding to jointly finance undergraduate education for PCP graduates.

Having completed all PCP program requirements, eligible students will enter four-year undergraduate programs at accredited universities outside of Myanmar. Tuition and expenses incurred during the first year of study will be covered by scholarship providers and/or the students and families themselves.

Provided they succeed academically during the initial year, these students will be granted Zomia loan funding not to exceed a total of US $10,000 to cover expenses during subsequent years of study. This ensures that total debt remains at levels that can be repaid on typical salaries earned in Southeast Asia.
