Each year, Thai universities, colleges, institutions and schools provides full scholarships for students from Cambodia to come to study at their universities including MSU. These scholarships are for the full term of study for a degree.
 
This year a total of one hundred and forty-eight students from twenty-three institutions attended the 7th initial welcoming ceremony held at Mahasarakham University. Of these one hundred and forty-eight will stay on to attend a comprehensive fast track course in Thai language and culture given by MSU. After this nineteen students will remain to start as freshmen commencing next semester at MSU while the rest will attend other universities across Thailand. Upon completion of their degree the students will return to Cambodia to apply the skills they have learned to improve the quality of life of the Cambodian people.
 
An innovative part of these scholarships is free dental check-ups and dental health care during the orientation process on 2 – 4 May 2017. MSU Demonstration High School multi-purpose building is transformed into a huge dental clinic and dentists (and students) from Faculty of Dentistry, Mahidol University come to provide the necessary dental skills. The students receive any necessary dental service so they start their studies healthy and happy. 
 
The graciousness of HRH Princess Sirindhorn is also extended to local communities. Free dental check-ups and dental health care service is also provided to members of local communities, MSU staff and students. It is a valuable service now provided annually and helps many, many local people who otherwise could not afford dental treatments.
 
Furthermore, Gen. Vapirom Manasrangsi, special guests and MSU representatives attended a meeting to discuss about the Royal Scholarship under HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn Education Project to the Kingdom of Cambodia at Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, MSU before attending a welcome dinner given in his honour.
