Welcome to the AWC Scholarship Program
Since its inception in 1995, the AWC Scholarship Program has supported more than 7,000 students across rural Thailand through this sponsor-driven program. Our mission is to advance the educational knowledge of disadvantaged female Thai high school students by providing supplemental financial assistance. We also partner with the students by providing encouragement to develop English-language skills to further their educational opportunities.
About the Scholarship Program:
Supporting the Scholarship Program is a chance to contribute and help education development in Thai society, targeting the young women who are from poor families and who have good academic performance. The support encourages these young women to continue and complete their education at least in the high school level. The Scholarship Program’s work includes:
• Sponsorship Drive and Donor communications
• School Visits, English Camp, and Art Contests
Scholarship Fundraising Drive
Our 2018 fundraising drive has concluded. Thank you to all who have been so generous in the past, and we hope you will support a student again! Sponsorships are accepted year round, and we are already making plans for the next fundraising drive. Please click to donate.
A scholarship sponsorship covers most educational expenses for one year, enabling a student to further her education. The fees for books, uniforms, supplies, meals and transportation are all the responsibility of the student’s family. These extra expenses are a real burden for most families in rural communities in Thailand.
2018 marks the 23rd year of the Scholarship Program. It is something we are very proud of. We believe we have made a difference in the lives of so many students in Thailand. Through school visits we have heard many success stories of our scholarship students returning to the province after completing their university education to teach in the local schools.
The program is run by volunteers who believe that there is a great need for providing financial assistance to the girls living in the small towns and villages to enable them to complete their high school education. If you are interested in supporting the Scholarship Program, becoming a major sponsor, or joining the Scholarship Program Committee, please contact us here, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Scholarships and Awards:
The AWC Scholarship Program awards a total of more than 2 million baht annually in scholarships to at least 400 students in 32 targeted schools across rural Thailand. Eligibility criteria for young women in grades 10-12 (M4-M6) are good academic performance (> 2.5GPA), a low family income, good behavior and a commitment to education while building a sustainable community. Each student is awarded 5,000 baht per year for school-related expenses their families often cannot afford. Your charitable donation is an investment in the students ~ the important work of our program. Another great opportunity to give and connect to our future!
