AWC Scholarship and EDF Partnership

The AWC has partnered with The Education for Development Foundation (EDF) to administer the school interface portion of our program since 2012. EDF's highly qualified staff has administered scholarships to students in Thailand over the past 25 years.

This partnership allows us to bring our mutual strengths to the program. EDF, under the AWC name, will oversee the application and acceptance process, database management, and disbursement of funds to schools. The Scholarship Committee volunteers will raise sponsorships and facilitate cultural exchange activities such as our school visits, English Camp weekend, and Art & Essay Contest.

We’re thrilled that with this partnership will maintain continuity, improve local communications and continue to support students with no change to the scholarship funding they receive. Going forward, English Camp will be produced as funds allow or on a smaller scale. As a registered, tax-exempt organization, donations made by Thailand taxpayers are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by Thai law.

EDF won the Thai Virtue Prize 2014 awarded by the Association of the Union of the Disabled of Thailand and co-partners. The prize memorializes the Royal Grandmother, Somdet Phra Srinagarindra Boromarajajonani’s, birthday (National Social Administration’s day) and is given as a model of a virtuous NGO. Besides this, EDF has handed out over 12,500 scholarships in 2014. They have also been involved in the English Access Micro-scholarship Program to help students in the North to learn communicative English and help in their personal development. EDF is also very active in the Isaan region and have been helping the students affected in the south due to the political unrest.
