Esso-Rattanakosin Bicentennial Scholarships
In recognition of the vital importance of higher education and the need to develop the next generation of scientists and engineers to help secure energy in today's highly competitive and technology-driven world, Esso has worked with the Office of the Higher Education Commission (O.H.E.C.) since 1982 when the Esso-Rattanakosin Bicentennial Fund was established. The company has continued to support the fund as well as a scholarship program every year since then. Approximately 2,000 scholarships have been granted to students in the science and engineering fields from universities nationwide to date, with a total contribution amount of more than 15 million baht.
Esso-Vocational Science Contest
Since 1991, we partnered with the Education Ministry and the Science Society of Thailand to organize the Esso Vocational Contest for students at vocational schools. The program aims to promote science education and skill development among vocational students and results in various innovative scientific inventions that benefit the society with several projects winning awards in international competitions while some projects have been developed into commercial scale.
