Share This Post

The Thailand Government, through the Thailand International Postgraduate Program (TIPP), is offering fully funded master’s scholarships for the academic year 2023-2024 to international students. These scholarships provide coverage for various expenses, including living allowances, accommodation allowances, settlement money, books allowances, and thesis allowances.

The TIPP was established in 2000 to provide postgraduate scholarships to developing partners, with the belief that sharing knowledge is crucial for South-South Cooperation. It serves as a platform for Thailand and its partners to exchange experiences and best practices that contribute to long-term and sustainable development for all.

The TIPP scholarships and the training courses offered by the Asian Institute of Technology and Communication (AITC) focus on sharing Thailand’s expertise and experiences with the world. These topics are organized under five main themes: Climate Change, Food Security, Public Health, other topics related to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the “Sufficiency Economy Philosophy” (SEP), which is a key development approach adopted by Thailand.

By conducting the Annual International Training Course and the Thailand International Postgraduate Program, the Thailand International Cooperation Agency (TICA) believes it is making a valuable contribution towards a sustainable future by sharing Thailand’s knowledge and expertise.
