Obtaining Scholarships in Thailand

Thailand is a very popular tourist destination. It seems as though everyone and their cousin has been there. We rarely hear anything negative coming from their experiences as well. People talk about the history, hospitality, food, landscapes, culture. There I so much going for the country in terms of all of these things that we overlook study opportunities there. Why should they be overlooked is a mystery. Many of us was to live in these destinations which leave such an impact. Why does nobody speak of living in Thailand. This is rather odd. They speak even less of studying there. This is even stranger and study allows one to live somewhere, and know that there is a time limit, reducing any sort of negative risk. I therefore hope to open your eyes to the grant and scholarship opportunities in Thailand, and therefore also help you step through the gate towards liviing in Thailand.

The first scholarship to look at is the Nippon Foundation Fellowships for Asian Public Intellectuals, or API Fellowships Programme. It aims to stimulate the creation and development of pools of public intellectuals in the region. They have three goals, which are to create this community in the region, promote mutual learning within the community, and finally contribute to the growth of public spaces which generate good responses to the regional needs. As the name might imply, it is not actually exclusive to Thailand, so you have other potential countries of study. These include Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Thailand, so long as they are neither your native country or country of residence. Around 30 scholarships are awarded. They include several benefits. These range from transportation costs at the international and domestic level, a research allowance for related expenses, and a housing allowance and spending stipend. Each is adjusted to the country or study.

The second to look at is the SCG Foundation Scholarship in International Development Studies at Chulalongkom University. Hosted by the Chulongkom University in Thailand, it is specifically for the MAIDS (Master of Arts Programme in International Development Studies). It targets citizens from a number of countries. These include citizzens of Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Indonesia, and the Philippines. The total grant value could add up to baht 1,000,000.

These are just two of the available options. You can spend your own time looking for others. Fortunately, many Western universities have set up campuses in the region, so your own university could take you to Thailand,
