Established in 2016, The University of Cambodia Foundation facilitates the obtaining and administering of donations for the University’s future development and expansion. It also ensures that donations are used solely for the benefit of The University of Cambodia, and that any donors’ specifications can be best realized. The Foundation has four core aims for the dispensation of the funds and other donations which it receives: to support the employment of faculty who are experts in their respective fields, and thereby enhance the quality of the teaching provided; to establish a research environment – the first in any Cambodian university – for the promotion of research and investigative studies relevant to the country’s future development; to provide scholarships for the deserving poor, so that they are given the opportunity to upgrade themselves; and to promote the accessibility of higher education to those in the provinces.
