The program’s fellowship and teaching assistantship

The Ph.D. program in Economics offers two types of scholarships: (1) scholarship for distinguished achievement and (2) teaching assistant scholarships.  Both funds are available after the third semester of the first academic year and students are eligible for funding until the end of their fourth-year.  Funding for fifth-year student is possible, but is not guarantee.  The funding is given semester-by-semester and is subjected to student’s academic performance.

- Scholarship for distinguished achievement is awarded to the student with outstanding academic performance.  One scholarship is given to the best student in their class year.  The student who receives the scholarship required to work as a teaching assistant for the Ph.D. program. This scholarship includes the full-fee and tuition (76,000 Baht per semester) and a monthly salary (8,000 Baht per month for four months).

- Teaching assistant scholarships are awarded to students who pass all the Ph.D. program requirements.  Students are given tuition (57,000 Baht per semester) and are eligible to apply for teaching assistantships from the Department of Economics.  If the students are receiving the teaching assistant scholarship, they are required to teach a tutoring session for the undergraduate course.  Other responsibilities may include grading homework and quizzes.  However, there is no guarantee for the assistantship since this depends on the decision of the Department of Economics.

- The program also offers financial supports for the students who plan to present their paper in international conferences.
