Laguna Phuket Foundation for Education

Laguna Phuket Foundation for Education

Details:

Laguna Phuket Foundation for Education was established in 1993 with a fund of 2 million baht. The goal of the fund is to provide educational opportunities to economically disadvantaged and socially vulnerable local children.

Each year, interest earned from the initial donation is distributed among select students ranging from primary school to university age. Over the past 14 years, more than 600 students have been awarded these scholarships, which total about 2.4 million baht.

The Foundation Committee, chaired by the Phuket Governor, has worked diligently over the years to ensure that the selection process is transparent and fair. The extensive screening process includes student, teacher, and parent interviews, and school and personal performance considerations among other processes.
