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.
