The Stanford Thailand Research Consortium (STRC) supports Stanford faculty research pertinent to areas of social, economic, and technological development vital to Thailand’s future success.
Consortium-funded research projects align to central themes of raising human values, increasing economic prosperity, ensuring environmental protection, and advancing social well-being throughout Thai society. Established in 2018, the Consortium creates avenues for faculty across Stanford schools and disciplines to engage in research with real-world applications.
The Consortium is actively managed by the STRC faculty steering committee and the Stanford Center for Professional Development (SCPD). Funded by a combined gift pledge of $15 million, the Consortium fund is housed in Stanford’s Office of the Vice Provost and Dean of Research. The Consortium also works closely with the Southeast Asia Center (SEAC) in Thailand to support and advance the work of Stanford faculty conducting Consortium research.
We offer our sincere appreciation to AP (Thailand), AIS, and Kasikornbank for their generous support as members of the Stanford Thailand Research Consortium.
The Stanford Thailand Research Consortium has supported over 15 research and education projects to date, across a range of domains and topics of inquiry. Below is a list of current research projects and their associated principal investigators across Stanford.

Research Proposal Submission
Each September, STRC invites short-form research proposals from Stanford faculty interested in funding for projects aligned with the Consortium’s purpose and themes. Submitted proposals are evaluated by the STRC faculty steering committee and funding decisions are made in October. In some years, additional proposal reviews are conducted in January, contingent on available gift funds.
Stanford faculty and researchers interested in engaging with the Consortium, or who have questions regarding the research proposal process or timeline, may contact Matt Harvey.
