How to get a scholarship to study abroad

Most university students dream of studying abroad, but for many, it remains only a dream, even after a number of applications.

Chan Beun, project coordinator for sponsorship in World Vision Cambodia, said, “I have applied for a scholarship to study a master’s abroad many times already, but I’ve never been successful in getting a place.

“I applied to study international development through various scholarship programs from Italy, German, Philippines, and Australia,” Beun continued.

Beun went on to study management at the University of Management and Economics for three years before moving to Phnom Penh to get a job.

“I attended university again to finish year four at National Institution of Business in Phnom Penh and got a bachelor’s degree in 2010,” he said.

Even though he has a job, he still wants to get a scholarship abroad to study for a master’s degree. “I really want to get master’s degree in international development or a master’s of education especially from IDP scholarship to study in Australia. When I’m back I can help to develop my country and my hometown,” Beun said.

He knows that to study abroad requires a high level of English so he continues he continues to develop his English skills​.

Currently he is studying general English at ACE and completed the IEAP program from Pannasastra University of Cambodia.
