NorCal RITAA has two projects :

  • Provide scholarship to the children of alumni in the USA
  • Provide scholarship to eligible YTU students.

Some EC members suggest the use of stipend, grant and financial aid if applicable.

Eligible YTU students are typically offered $1000 for a year.

The current recipients should reapply the following years if they have maintained good grades and they still need financial assistance.

The list of donors is maintained by the Treasurer.

U Ko Ko Zin (M84) served two terms as Treasurer.
Edward Saw (U Yu Ket, EC85) is the current Treasurer.

NorCal RITAA awards (in 2018)

  • $1000 to four YTU students
  • $500 to three YTU students

The photo of the Award winners was taken in July, 2018.

Their video testimonials can be seen in the NorCal RITAA website and the Facebook pages.

Selection Committee and Recipients

Volunteers from Yangon (mostly who are involved in RITAA) helped with the selection of the award winners.

We are sad to note about the hardship of several YTU students (some of whom are shy to request financial assistance).

When some saw the group photo, they thought that Nan Khin Nwe (83 Intake and Organizer, standing left to the students) was one of the recipients.

The list is not exhaustive
