  Appreciation for Significant Donors

Starting with an initial contribution from the estate of Professor Dr. Jason Roussos, the program's growth in the early years benefitted from the dedication of George Curuby and Ms. Tomoko Kanno, who were close friends of Professor Roussos in Japan. Other significant contributions have come from the Stone Family Foundation (Los Angeles) and the Mother Li Gim Giew Foundation of TOA Paint (Thailand) Co., Ltd. Both of these contributors have donated on a regular basis.

Other donors who have played an important role in the program's success include the scholarship committee members and ordinary members of the TMWA, Thai physicians in general, local businesspersons and entrepreneurs, and other people from all walks of life. Donations have been made by a series of TMWA Presidents, starting from Dr. Suwanee Raktham M.D., Assoc. Prof. Pornphan Boonyarataphan, M.D., Dr. Chamaree Chuapetcharasopon M.D., Prof. Emeritus Dr. Khun Nanta Maranetra M.D., and the current President, Maj. Jantra Chennavasin M.D. (2005-2019). Their support has provided an opportunity for young members of TMWA to complete their medical education without becoming a burden on the limited financial capabilities of their families; and to be able to dedicate all of their efforts to their studies.

The TMWA Scholarship for Female Medical Students is a monetary grant that does not require repayment– however recipients are expected to make a wholehearted promise that they will commit themselves to practicing medicine in their rural hometowns or any other regional area in Thailand.
