The Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) consists of Cambodia, China (Yunnan & Guanxi Provinces), Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam. AIT’s focal point for GMS activities is in the networking under the Greater Mekong Subregion Academic and Research Network (GMSARN). GMSARN seeks to ensure that the holistic intellectual knowledge and assets generated, developed and maintained are shared by organizations within the region. Primary emphasis is placed on complementary linkages between technological and socio-economic development issues. GMSARN now includes 15 region’s top-ranking academic and research institutions.

The first phase of operation of GMSARN was to establish the structure for networking for collaboration among leading academic and research institutes in GMS region. Now in the second phase, GMSARN will strive to develop high-level academicians and researchers for networking. Thus, AIT has received funding from the Royal Thai Government to establish 10 scholarships to assist human resource development in these thematic areas deemed important for GMS: (1) Infrastructure Development (2) Energy Technology (3) Oil, Gas and Natural Resources Development and (4) Environmental Engineering and Management. A full scholarship will be granted to qualified candidates with excellent undergraduate achievements from any of the other 5 countries in GMS to pursue a master’s degree at AIT.
