Tips for getting the scholarship of your dreams

Last week, Chan Beun told us about his lack of success in applying for scholarships to study abroad and wanted some advice, especially for getting a scholarship to study in Australia.

This week, Hem Socheat, deputy director of Cambodia Financial Intelligence Unit in National Bank of Cambodia, who got a scholarship to study masters of business in Australia, gives her advice.

“You need to collect the information regarding each scholarship program, especially about the priorities of each program,” she tells Lift.

“Spend a least a year collecting and preparing the documents to apply for a scholarship,” she says, adding that, “you need to do a research proposal that focuses on field you want to apply for with a reference letter, interview, IELT test et cetera.”

“Some scholarship programs do not require research proposal or IELT test in the first step but you need to be well prepared because it can help your chances in passing the scholarship,”
Socheat says.

Hem Socheat has this message for Chan Beun: “I’m not sure why you failed to get the scholarships, but sometimes it’s due to failing in choosing scholarship program that’s right for you. And you need to do the IELT test.”
