Know a teenager who dreams of becoming the next Alex Face or Tavepong Pratoomwong? Rasami British International School (RBIS) might give them the boost they need to get there.
The international school has teamed up with Thailand’s inspirational motosai driver-turned-photographer Pichai “Eak” Keawvichit to offer a means-based scholarship for aspiring Thai teenagers.
Offered every year, and valid for a two-year period, the scholarship covers the cost of tuition for talented students looking to start their sixth form education (i.e., kids entering their final two years of high school). The schooling allows them to get the qualifications they need to gain entry into international and local universities or find employment in their preferred field.
To be eligible, students must provide a portfolio of artwork, complete an interview, and submit evidence to satisfy the means-based requirement. In other words, they must prove they do not have the funds to pay for this education themselves—the idea is to assist other potential Eak Keawvichits. From there, the lucky student will be chosen by the academic leadership team at RBIS and Eak himself.
