To be eligible the prospective student must be aged between 14 and 16 and residing in Phuket.

This opportunity will enable the selected student to work towards gaining an International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, widely recognised as the “gold standard” in education.

The scholarship recipient will be eligible for the following: full tuition, full boarding for the duration of the scholarship, monthly allowance for living expenses and English language support.

Applicants must be Thai nationals studying at a local Phuket school, born between September 1, 2000 and August 31, 2002.

UWCT will accept candidates on the basis of merit. After a candidate is considered qualified, their financial status is assessed in order to determine whether they have a demonstrated need for full scholarship.
