I recently received an acceptance letter with a partial scholarship from Mahidol Thailand for Master Degree on Public Health. I am from Myanmar. May I know any small grant about 10500 USD so that I could cover the rest tuition fee. Or is there any possible way I can apply so as to cover these costs. Thanks all.

Today marks the 19th anniversary of the devastating September 11th terrorist attacks on the United States of America.

The events of September 11, 2001 touched the lives of all Americans and redefined a generation.

As part of promoting safe living and social distancing on college campus this Fall 2020 semester in the wake of COVID-19, colleges and universities holding in-person classes have cut down on the number of students who can reside in the traditional college dorm. Many colleges have invited just a fraction of the class back to school and are altering traditional double and triple rooms into singles.
