Human Resource Development
In partnership with NEF, FREDA has been supporting the outstanding scholars of local universities leading to M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in various fields related to environmental science such as Botany, Biology, Ecology, Forestry and Zoology starting from 1998.
FREDA has also awarded scholarships to outstanding undergraduate forestry students of every class studying at the University of Forestry Yezin and stipends to promising high school graduates who are financially handicapped to study forestry at the University. Support is also given to the outstanding students of the Myanmar Forest School at Pyin Oo Lwin every year.
Support to students in the academic field of environmental science is one of the avenues that FREDA is promoting for increased awareness, motivation and experience of the younger generation, contributing towards effective conservation of the natural environment in Myanmar.
