Dear Donor and Supporter,

For 31 years that EDF Foundation has been implementing and administering Scholarship Program with our mission to prolong school life of Thai disadvantaged students who traditionally struggled with attendance in school because of the lack of financial means, inferiorities, thereby missing the learning opportunities to which they were rightfully entitled. From 1988 to 2018, with continuing support from caring donors both in Thailand and abroad, EDF has delivered scholarships to the total number of 373,414 disadvantaged students in more than 5,500 rural schools covering 61 provinces throughout Thailand.

For this recent school year 2019, EDF Foundation would like to thank  to all caring donor and supporter for your continuing support to EDF Scholarship Program which enabled us to provide the total of 8,634 scholarships to those eligible candidates which comprises; 7,130 scholarships for poor lower secondary students, 783 scholarships for poor upper secondary/vocational students, 390 scholarships for students with disabilities, 296 scholarships for orphaned students affected from the unrest in the 3 southernmost provinces and 35 scholarships for university students. 

Scholarship support from you is crucial not only to help relieve the financial burden of their families on their schooling, but also give them good encouragement in studying and empower them with potential to become self reliance and escape from the vicious cycle of poverty.

In the coming festive season at the end of this year 2019, we would like to encourage you to share a smile and happiness to Thai students in need in the rural areas by giving through our "Online Gift Catalogue" which will help nurture the value of sharing of the gifts they received among their less fortunate friends and classmates in school. 

From October 1st, 2019, EDF Foundation has officially opened the donation period for those students who are about to apply for scholarships in the coming school year 2020 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

EDF is most appreciative of your entrusted contribution and strongly hopes for renewed pledges for many years to come.
Respectfully yours,
 Sunphet Nilrat
 EDF Managing Director
