Phuket Hotels Association award their first six scholarships

Tanutam Thawan



The PHAB (Phuket Hotels Association Benefit) fundraising event was held last year on May 13 and raised approximately 4 million baht. Since then, the Phuket Hotels Association’s Education Working Group has placed advertisements, shortlisted candidates and interviewed the prospects for its scholarship program.

The three institutions they will be working with are Phuket Vocational College, Rajabhat University and Prince of Songkhla University – all in the Hospitality and Tourism sector.

Today was the day when six successful students received their scholarships at the Phuket Vocational College.

This Scholarship is a cooperation between Phuket Hotels Association and the Phuket International Womens Club.

“We have reviewed 8 shortlisted candidates and the members of the Phuket International Women’s Club and the Phuket Hotel Association Education Committee interviewed these students on November 30, 2017 at the Phuket Vocational College.

“We’re proud to announce the successful candidates who will receive a 5 year program on full-scholarship by the Phuket International Women’s Foundation & Phuket Hotels Association partnership.”

1. Miss Patcharee Singkong

2. Mr. Sutinan Hasap

3. Mr Poramat Rerksin

4. Mr. Anacha Paenying

5. Mr. Nattasit Phirompan

6. Miss Suphawan Namlai

The 5 years scholarship program and the administration of these scholarships are managed through the Phuket International Womens Club.
