The Graduate Scholarship Program for Students
from Neighboring Countries
Founded in 1917 by H.M. King Vajiravudh (Rama VI), the university was named after his father, H.M. King Chulalongkom (Rama V), for it was during his reign that modem education took root in Thailand.
Recognizing the importance of internationalization, CU has taken a leading role in implementing interactive collaboration with the international community. In order to further develop academic cooperation between Thailand and its neighboring countries, the University has established a "Scholarship Program for Neighboring Counties" to provide academic assistance to students from Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam to pursue their studies at Chulalongkom University at graduate level.
