The University of Cambodia (UC) received 4,567 applications forms from qualified potential students to compete for the Samdech Techo Hun Sen-Handa Vision-100 Scholarships. The Samdech Techo Hun Sen-Handa Vision-100 Scholarships cover full tuition fees at UC. Recipients can pursue undergraduate degrees from a variety of majors in the Colleges of Arts and Humanities, Education, Law, Management, Science and Technology, and Social Sciences.
After submitting their application forms to the University, students competed in a scholarship examination that covered general knowledge and English language comprehension on September 22. With the help of volunteer students, UC staff members facilitated the scholarship exam to ensure fairness to all students who competed in the competition. The highest scoring candidates on the exam will be designated as the Vision-100 scholarship recipients.
UC will post official results for the Samdech Techo Hun Sen-Handa Vision-100 Scholarships on Friday, October 7. The official scholarship-awarding ceremony will be held at UC in November 2011.
The scholarships are a continuation of UC’s previous Scholarship Programs, inspired by Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen, together with the generosity of Dr. Haruhisa Handa (Chancellor of UC, Chairman of the International Foundation for Arts and Culture, and Chairman of World Mate) and Dr. Rikhi Thakral, Executive Director of the Thakral Group of Companies in Singapore.
