The ACE Part-Time Scholarship initiative is introduced both as part of the ACE Corporate Social Responsibility Program and to compliment the Royal Government of Cambodia’s policy to raise the quality of education in Cambodia via reform programs of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport.

Through the ACE Part-Time Scholarship initiative, 100 full scholarships for one year of study at ACE are provided to high-performing Cambodian high school graduates by equipping them with better English language proficiency to enable them to continue excelling in their studies at tertiary level in Cambodia. With an improved standard of English, these graduates will have a better chance of being selected for overseas scholarships in an English-speaking country.

Eligible Applicants:

  1. Cambodian high school graduates in 2019;
  2. Each scholarship will be for one year of part-time study which consists of four ACE academic terms (January to December 2020). The value of each scholarship is up to USD1, 000 (one thousand US dollars) to be supported by IDP Education.


The Selection Committee will assess and make selection based on a number of criteria in addition to applicants’ English language level. The Selection Committee reserves the right to exercise its discretion on priorities such as gender equity, those coming from provincial areas or disadvantaged backgrounds as well as the availability of classes at applicable levels at ACE.
