Mission Statement

The Cambodian Scholarship Foundation is dedicated to educating and empowering adolescent girls in Cambodia. CASF works with local communities to identify students who show motivation, merit, and need. We provide funding, training, and mentoring to lead students through secondary school to higher education, acquiring the skills they need for a sustainable future.

Description

The Cambodian Scholarship Foundation (CASF) operates in two Cambodian provinces, Kandal and Svay Rieng. We intervene with educational opportunities for girls before high school, at the very time they often drop out or are taken out of school, and we follow them closely throughout high school, providing a local educational coordinator who works with students on a personal basis.

Once a student passes the National Exam and is accepted to a university, oversight continues, with housing (in the CASF University Women’s Support Center in Phnom Penh), a computer lab, mentoring, medical care, and monthly stipend and tuition provided by CASF.

For fifteen years, CASF has concentrated all our efforts towards our mission, that of educating our students. We can now boast of over seventy graduates, who are working in law firms, hospitals, NGOs, businesses, and in other professions.
