Refer to the announcement of Thailand's Ministry of Education to postpone the date of school opening for this academic year 2020 to July 1st, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, EDF Foundation, then, extended its First Term/2020 scholarship donation period until June 30th, 2020 (previously May 31st, 2020). We express our sincerest thanks to our valued donors and supporters for their continuing support to the education of less fortunate Thai students through EDF program, despite some of them may also be suffering the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to the official figure as of June 30th, 2020, EDF Foundation was able to raise the total number of 7,729 scholarship donations comprising of 6,719 lower secondary scholarships, 645 upper secondary scholarships, 151 scholarships for students with disabilities, 191 scholarships for orphaned students affected by the insurgencies in the southernmost part of Thailand and 23 scholarships for higher education.
The total number of 7,729 scholarships raised accounted for approx. 75 percentof 10,360 eligible students who passed our screening process and has been in our scholarship waiting list of this school year 2020. As a result, 2,631 students unluckily missed a chance to receive scholarship support in the first term of this academic year.
From July to August 2020, our scholarship team will work together with teachers from more than 1,500 schools throughout Thailand to verify the 7,729 scholarship recipients who had indicated their enrolment in various schools. This is a necessary precautionary step before EDF could transfer scholarship fund to each scholarship recipient.
On behalf of the 2,631 students on the waiting list, we have opened the Second Term/2020 scholarship donation period from July 1st to October 31st, 2020 to extend their chances of receive education support in time for start the second semester in November 2020, and you can help at least one of them by simply making your online donation through our English website at www.edfthai.org/en
