Brits call for STEM proposals

The British Embassy in Phnom Penh has announced a call for proposals for projects promoting so-called “STEM” education in Cambodia, with those selected receiving funding for 10 months beginning in June.

Submissions must contribute to the promotion of science, technology, engineering or mathematics education in Cambodia and lay out a budget up until March 2016. Multi-year projects will not be taken into consideration.

“We are looking for projects that can show impact and deliver change,” says the notice posted on the embassy’s website.

Projects focused on service delivery or that support the military, religious affairs, construction activities or certain other areas, are not eligible.

Those interested in proposing a project must submit a project concept form by May 25.

The project funding is part of the embassy’s “supporting sustainable development in Cambodia” initiative, aimed at assisting the Kingdom as it seeks to move from being a low-income country to a middle-income country – a shift spurred by an average annual economic growth rate of above 7 per cent.

Last year, the embassy sought projects on human rights and environmental sustainability.
