Following its launch in 2016, the SmartEdu Scholarship Program was extended to fund an additional 10 students who wish to pursue their university studies at the National Institute of Posts, Telecoms & ICT. From 2017 onwards, 20 scholars are selected each year to be part of this program. Each selected student receives up to 20,000 USD in funding, which covers tuition fees and monthly allowances to cover their living expenses throughout the duration of their university course. The scholars will also be provided with other opportunities, such as attending development programs and taking part in CSR outreach, as well as possible employment with Smart upon successful completion of their university studies.
The SmartEdu Scholarship Program embeds the objective of encouraging bright Cambodian high school students, particularly those students who are struggling financially, to pursue their university education.
