NIST Launches Dual Funds to Enrich Educational Opportunities

May 19, 2017

As of 2017, the NIST community represents over 60 nationalities and even more diverse cultures and backgrounds. In a school in which both adults and children have such different experiences from one another, it is inevitable that our students will also have unique strengths and needs. From the youngest learners in our early years programme to the grown children of our support staff, we believe that every individual can excel if given the opportunity. To ensure that we can provide these opportunities, we are proud to launch the NIST EA Learning Enrichment Fund and the NIST Education Fund in Commemoration of King Rama IX.

Funded through a generous contribution by a NIST family, the EA Learning Enrichment Fund will enable our school to provide individualized support for each and every NIST student regardless of their unique needs. Through continued donations to the fund, our community hopes to provides ongoing support and enrichment opportunities that inspire students and and empower them to positively impact others.

 

The Education Fund in Commemoration of King Rama IX originated in a project launched by the NIST Microcredit Bank, a student-run service group based on Muhammad Yunus’ micro-credit banking model. In addition to assisting the school’s support staff by encouraging new business ventures and promoting efficient debt management, it has provided education scholarships for their children since 2012.

In memory of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, who strongly believed in education as a tool to improve society, the work of the NIST Microcredit Bank has formally become a permanent fund. Through continued support from the greater community, we hope that the fund will provide the children of support staff with the chance to receive the best possible education, from the early years to university levels.

 

A community thrives when the individuals within it are inspired and provided with the chance to grow in line with their passions and abilities. Through the EA Learning Enrichment Fund and Education Fund in Commemoration of King Rama IX, NIST aims to be a school that empowers all learners to excel and positively impact others.
