Samdech Techo Hun Sen Vision-100 Scholarship Winners

The University of Cambodia (UC) announced the 100 winners of the Samdech Techo Hun Sen’s Vision-100 Scholarship on October 12, 2010. On that day, hundreds of students swarmed the front of the UC main campus building, anxiously awaiting the results of the scholarship competition.

When these were officially posted in the UC Conference Center, students crowded around the boards to see if they were among the 100 scholarship winners.

Over 5,400 students had taken the competitive examination on October 3, which tested Khmer general knowledge and English proficiency.

“Although the UC staff was very busy for several weeks working on this, we were very happy to see a large number of students participate in this scholarship opportunity.” said Mrs. Por Malis, Vice President for Operations.

The Samdech Techo Hun Sen’s Vision-100 Scholarship covers full tuition fees at UC. Recipients can pursue undergraduate degrees from a variety of majors in the Colleges of Arts & Humanities, Education, Law, Management, Science & Technology, and Social Sciences.

The scholarships are a continuation of the UC’s previous Scholarship Programs and have been inspired by Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen, together with the generosity of Dr. Haruhisa Handa (Chancellor of the University of Cambodia, 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.
