Our Scholarship Selection Criteria
We deliver scholarships to children whose families are particularly impoverished, who without scholarship support would not be able to send their children to school. Each year, Yuvabadhana communicates information on its scholarship program through its website, Office of Basic Education Commission (OBEC) website, and social media channels including Facebook, Instagram, and Line. We also send letters to some 183 local primary education authorities, 42 secondary education authorities and schools throughout the country requesting the assistance of principals, teachers and school administrators to help select students who are in particular need of the foundation’s support. The criteria the foundation uses when making its final scholarship selection is whether our support will be vital in continuing a child’s education at the secondary level, as well as the poverty levels of their families. The average monthly income of the families we support through scholarships is 3,000 Thai baht per month (approximately $90), as such the foundation’s selection criteria is in line with the Ministry of Education’s criteria for poor students.
