10 students to receive China Dali University scholarships

The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports on July 20 announced that it would select 10 undergraduate students to study at China’s Dali University for the academic year 2021-2022 on scholarship.

The university will cover accommodation, tuition fees and a monthly scholarship of 400 yuan ($62), but the students are responsible for travelling expenses.

The announcement said 10 applicants with the highest scores will be selected. The exam, which is scheduled for August 29, is on mathematics and English subjects with a time limit of one and a half hours per subject.

All candidates must be Cambodian nationals, not older than 25, be in good physical and mental health, and have a high school diploma or equivalent. Students can choose majors upon successful completion of studying Chinese.

Applications will be accepted from the date of the announcement until August 24 at the scholarship and internship office of the ministry’s Cultural Relations and Scholarship Department.

Candidates can also download the exam application form via the link https://bit.ly/3zl0l5m to complete and send to the office via Telegram at 012 677 433.

Education ministry spokesman Ros Soveacha told The Post: “All scholarship students will have an important role to play in improving the quality of human capital, which involved the development of Cambodia in all areas today and in the future.”

He said that in general, the ministry publicly promotes and encourages students to apply for national and international scholarships through the ministry’s existing mechanisms in cooperation with relevant institutions, especially higher education institutions in Cambodia and partner countries.

According to Soveacha, from 1980 to 2020, a total of 19,546 Cambodian students have received scholarships to study abroad. Among them, 1,755 students received scholarships to study in China.

In 2020, a total of 421 Cambodian students received scholarships from other countries, including 155 from China.
