HF and adidas hold scholarship fair in Myanmar

Monday, 30 May 2016   (0 Comments)



Hinrich Foundation (HF) successfully hosted the second leg of the Hinrich-adidas joint scholarships information sessions in Myanmar on May 28, 2016.

Our alumni (Soe Sandar Oo) is sharing about her scholarship experiences and current work with adidas. 

Following the event in Cambodia on May 21, this event was held at the Myanmar Engineering Society by HF and its partners to provide an opportunity for residents of Myanmar and Cambodia.  Qualified candidates get the chance to study overseas at accredited universities in Vietnam (Vietnamese-German University) and are even offered internship during their studies and a job opportunity upon graduation.

Since the scholarship program’s introduction in Myanmar and Cambodia, there have already been inquiries from prospective candidates, as well as interest from both governments.

In Cambodia, the Ministry of Commerce gave a meaningful talk on the status of talent development in Cambodia and how the program can help bridge the gap between the demand and supply.

In Myanmar meanwhile, visitors got opportunity to speak with representatives from Pou Chen Myanmar, one of HF’s partners, about current career opportunities in the company.

“We have been expanding in Myanmar. Right now, we have over 2,500 employees and have a critical need for more talents who can assume managerial-level positions,” said Henry Chien, a representative from Myanmar Pou Chen.
