A Scholarship includes full tuition either to a private high school such as Future Bright International High School or a University. We also provide school supplies and uniforms.
Depending on the financial status of the student, scholarships may also include coverage for:
The cost to sponsor a student varies depending on the student. We ask for a minimum of $50/month and it can go up to $200/month for more expensive private universities in Phnom Penh. We respectfully request that you use the PayPal Giving Fund link to avoid any transaction fees.
When you sponsor a student, you will receive a letter from him or her every three months. We encourage donors to write back with notes of encouragement or information about themselves but we do not allow direct communication between the sponsor and the student.
The Savong Foundation makes every effort possible to select the most deserving students and we do our best to keep our students in our program. However, due to some circumstances which are beyond our control, a sponsored student may drop out of school. This is heartbreaking for us as well as the sponsor but it is an unfortunate consequence when working in a very impoverished region.
