Dr. Chumpol Phornprapha, Chairman of University Council of Rajamangala University of Technology Thanyaburi, revealed that this is a challenging time for Thailand to be facing and struggling with economic, political and social developments due to the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19). The impact also took its toll to the financial situations of some student’s families. After in-depth interviews with these families, causes of the circumstances became clear. Many parents had to cope with losing their jobs or part of their income meaning they were less likely to pay their children’s tuitions even if students were able to earn their spots in the university or to receive student loans from the RMUTT university’s student loan fund (SLF). Dr. Chumpol added that RMUTT university had decided to initiate a funding program using a budget of 1-million-baht covering to 2,000 baht a month for each student for 4 years, starting from year 2020. In order to receive their share of these funds, students must meet the following criteria: students who are unfortunate enough to miss all classes throughout one academic year because they need to find money just like their parents do. Hopefully, the university could help these students. Initially, funding will be handed to 5 students with ongoing follow up and support to assess continuing education outcomes.
