Why scholarships are vital for low-income students and families

We have said it before, but it bears repeating as often as possible, higher education has never been more important, but it’s also never been more expensive. For students from low-income families, this is a catch-22 of massive proportions. If good schools were accessible and affordable, they’d have a better chance to break the cycle of generational poverty. Instead, the struggle to pay for higher education can leave students and their families in dire financial straits. At Sackhumvit we believe in putting students first. That means addressing issues of affordability and access to school and college education. For the month of December, we distributed scholarships to 60 students from grades 9th and 10th. All cheques were issued directly to the respective schools.
