Dear Donor and Supporter,

EDF Foundation has started its scholarship program for Thai less fortunate students since 1988 and first granted 41 scholarships to disadvantaged students in Udonthani province in the first year.  Our mission was to prolong the school life of disadvantaged students who traditionally struggled with attendance because of the lack of financial means, inferiorities, thereby missing the learning opportunities to which they were rightfully entitled.  Since then EDF has granted many more scholarships and continues in its commitment to empowering disadvantaged children through education.
Almost three decades, with continuing support from caring donors both in Thailand and abroad, EDF has delivered scholarships worth over 580 million baht to more than 350,000 disadvantaged students in more than 5,000 rural schools throughout Thailand. (View EDF Scholarship Statistic from 1988-2016)
In the school year 2016 alone, EDF was able to provide the total 10,616 scholarships, valued 27,875,100 Baht to needy students throughout Thailand  which can be classified by type of scholarships as below:


Since January 2017, EDF has been accepting scholarship applications from thousands less fortunate students throughout Thailand who wish to receive educational support to continue their studies in the school year 2017 which will begin the first semester in the coming mid of May 2017 and we estimate that at least 10,000 eligible students would pass our selection process and be in queue in EDF scholarship waiting list in this school year 2017.
Therefore, EDF has opened our scholarship donation period for the next school year 2017 from Today until May 31st 2017, and you can simply make your online scholarship donation directly through our secured online donation system in this website or contact us for more information at public@edfthai.orgEDF is most appreciative of your entrusted contribution and strongly hopes for renewed pledges for many years to come.
Respectfully yours,
