In 1964, during the Presidency of the Late PP Wudhi Mekdhanasarn, our Club’s members voted to set up a permanent scholarship fund in Luang Sit’s name to assist needy children obtain tertiary education. Thus, the Luang Sit Sayamkarn Scholarship Fund was established in Luang Sit’s memory, and the Luang Sit Scholarship Fund Committee was set up under the Chairmanship of PP Wudhi.
Thanks to donations by members, family and friends, the Luang Sit Sayamkarn Scholarship Fund has accumulated over the years and now exceeds 2.25 million Baht. Members make donations on their birthdays, anniversaries or other special occasions. The Fund is held on term deposit under the custodianship of The Rotary Club of Bangkok South and the interest generated provides a limited number of scholarships for needy children.
In 1985, the Luang Sit Fellowship Programme was established. Under this initiative, members of Rotary Bangkok South, wives, relatives and friends can become a Luang Sit Fellow by donating Baht 10,000 per year for at least four consecutive years. Luang Sit Fellows receive a commemorative pin in recognition of their support.
