Dear Donor and Supporter,
 
Since late 2014, EDF has called for scholarship applications from less fortunate students who wish to continue their education in the coming school year 2015. We expect to finish verification of applicants’ qualifications and finalize the actual number of eligible scholarship candidates by February 2015.
 
EDF scholarship team has also continuously made the field visit to hold the meeting with teachers who in charge of EDF scholarship program from over 4,000 schools in 48 provinces through out Thailand with the purpose to ensure they understand correctly about EDF scholarship policy, scholarship working procedures and scholarship student recruitment.

The random visits to scholarship applicants’ home are also carried out to double check students’ qualifications and ensure that the scholarships will go to the right qualified students.
For this month’s Featured Story, iwe would like to present "Nut's Dream" , an interesting story of Panus Klaigubkham or Nut, 12, a 6 grade student at Ban Mak Ya School, Udonthani province. Eventhough he was born poor, but he never gives up his own destiny and always put more effotforts than others in everything. Nut loves Math and dreams to be a Math teacher. That is the reason why he has applies for EDF scholarship in this school year 2015 to continue his study and to make his dream come true.
 
Nut’s story is another example of the effort and ambition of less fortunate children in Thailand’s rural areas who dream to have better lives through being educated. But they are still lacking of support and help especially “educational scholarship” support which will empower them with wisdom and knowledge to overcome obstacles in life and become self-reliance.
