USAID Lincoln Scholarship Program
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID)’s Lincoln Scholarship Program is investing in the professional education of approximately 100 young Myanmar leaders from diverse backgrounds. Selected applicants will receive a Lincoln Scholarship to obtain a master’s degree from a U.S. university in fields of study that are critical to Myanmar’s development. The program will empower scholars with the technical knowledge, leadership skills, and respect for diversity to address Myanmar’s development challenges and promote a stable, prosperous, and pluralistic society. The program strongly encourages women, people with a disability, people from ethnic minority and religious groups and people who have not previously received a long-term international scholarship to apply.
