Radsady scholarships

The Om Radsady Memorial Scholarship for Cambodian Democracy was launched on April

16. The fund is named after the murdered Funcinpec advisor who was shot outside a

city restaurant in February. The crime, which was widely regarded as being politically

motivated, inspired family and friends to establish the awards. They will be granted

to students who submit the best essays focusing on democracy, justice or the rule

of law. The scholarships, which range from $300 for the winner of the university

competition to $100 for the winner of the junior high competition, will cover education

costs. The winners will be announced on June 16, the date Radsady would have turned

51.
