BANGKOK - The cabinet has agreed to extend a scholarship scheme for Mathayom 6 students from poor families to further their studies in Thailand or overseas.
Government spokesman Thossaporn Sereerak said the scheme will be slightly different from the One District One Scholarship (Odos) plan launched by the Thaksin Shinawatra administration.
The revised version of Odos offers 1,856 grants, two for each district, to students with good academic records, Mr Thossaporn said.
