Sackhumvit “Need Scholarship Program” Low Income Student Scholarships Too Poor for College?

Thomas Jefferson wrote 100 years ago, ”that the children of the poor must be thus educated at common expense.” Today, grants and scholarships open doors for students from lowincome families by providing financial aid for those who need it most. As a part of the Sackhumvit Scholarship Fund, this financial aid provides low income families with coveted college support. Eligibility is limited to families with a combined annual income falling under the category of below poverty line. Scholarships range from Rs.4000 to Rs. 80,000, and are designed as supplemental scholarships that fill all the above criteria. Each year hundreds of students benefit from our financial assistance. On 1st October we saw two hundred students gather to witness this grand ceremony of scholarship distribution. Students spoke about their experiences and future plans. They said they have many opportunities open to them with this college funding. From AI to Pure Science to Commerce our students have enrolled in many prestigious institutions. Education goes a long way in bringing a change in the society by creating a fair competitive environment. When you learn with your students, you can connect with them. We like to grow with our students, listen to their world—hear their stories.
