Thailand Government Scholarship

The Thailand Government Scholarship concluded in the 2014-2015 academic year

About the Scholarship

The LSE Asia Research Centre (ARC)–Thailand Government Scholarship scheme was a partnership between the Royal Thai Embassy in London and the Asia Research Centre, LSE. The Scholarship aimed to promote better understanding of, and knowledge regarding, Thailand.

The LSE student selected for the Scholarship visited Thailand and spent a minimum period of six weeks and a maximum period of two months in Thailand to undertake research on a project of relevance to Thailand and gain cultural exposure and understanding of the country. The Scholar was able to conduct any project of their interest on Thailand as part of their study programme at LSE.


The successful applicant visited Thailand and completed their Scholarship no later than end-September that year. The Scholarship provided travel, accommodation and subsistence costs. The Scholar was required to submit a report of their project to the Asia Research Centre within two weeks of their return.
