University Scholarships

Issues

▪   Without people educated at tertiary level, communities are less likely to be able to direct the development of their communities as they see fit

▪   Communities may lack awareness of their level of development due to lack of education

▪   Community leaders are often unable to solve challenges related to local development because they are unaware of macro-level processes that have local impacts

▪   There is a shortage of well-educated and experienced leaders across many communities in the Mekong Sub-Region

▪   The communities most in need of educated leaders are usually the communities most unable to afford the cost of tertiary education for individuals


Objectives

▪   To promote the development of the countries in the Mekong Sub-Region

▪   To support the education of students at the university level with scholarships for tuition and fees, living costs, and essential supplies

▪   To prioritise students who are likely to have a positive multiplier effect in their communities

▪   To prioritise students who are likely to have a direct impact from the application of their knowledge gained from university studies
