The start of the new school year has been unforgettable for two UWC Thailand students! After only just a few days on campus, Ungchuthaporn (Kimyong) from Thailand and Mengheang from Cambodia were awarded the prestigious UWCT Future Women Leaders Scholarship.
The yearly selection process identifies two or three female grade 11 students, one of which must be of Thai nationality, who have a chance of receiving a two-year fully-funded scholarship for the IB Diploma Programme at UWC Thailand. The candidates, who have already undergone the rigorous National Committee selection process, are further to determine which females would reflect the UWCT mission and values and show leadership skills, with intention to act as positive change agents.
Throughout the year, the young women will be invited to attend monthly meetings with female leaders in the school community, allowing them the opportunity to talk and learn from women leaders who have paved the way before them and who will serve to inspire them in the many paths available to reach positions of leadership in the future.
Previous UWCT Future Women Leaders Scholarship recipients include Larissa and Alissa who graduated last year (2021), and Katie, Lethyce and Nice who are currently in grade 12. We look forward to sharing more of their stories throughout the year.
We would like to acknowledge our generous donor for supporting these young women to be able to make a difference in the world!
