Ms. Babita Sharma, Masters student from Nepal in the School of Management, is the first winner of the Lawsgroup Charity Student Exchange Scholarship. She (see photo) is granted half of her expenses during her exchange program to Tsinghua University, China from September 2019 to January 2020.

The Lawsgroup Charity of Hong Kong is the third donor to support AITs Exchange Scholarship Program.  The Charity donated Thai Baht 1,000,000 (One Million Thai Baht) for a period of 5 years to be used for the Student Exchange Scholarship program either for AIT China students  exchanging to an AIT partner university in another country, or for AIT "Belt and Road" students exchanging to a partner university in China.  The scholarship is to subsidize half of the student’s exchange expenses and can be applied for students from all three Schools of AIT. A student winning such a scholarship will be called a Lawsgroup Charity Exchange Scholar. 

These exchange scholarship programs will enable AIT Master's students to have the opportunity to broaden their International exposure through a one-semester academic exchange to globally recognized universities with whom AIT has agreement.
