Laguna Phuket scholarship program was established in 1993 through Laguna Phuket Foundation for Education 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 funds together with Laguna Phuket corporate donation are distributed among select students ranging from primary school to university level. Over the past 14 years, more than 600 students have been awarded these scholarships, which total about 5 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, as well as school and personal performance.
