AIA Cambodia, part of Asia's largest life insurer group, will offer a range of initiatives to support CCF’s mission of providing education and development opportunities to underprivileged children living in Steung Meanchey, Phnom Penh.

As part of this partnership, AIA Cambodia will offer university scholarships. They will sponsor four university students with fees and other expenses, including a stipend for living costs. Two students will be selected in 2024, and two more in 2025. CCF will choose the students.

The total cost of the scholarships will be $41,200. The scholarships will have a huge impact on Cambodian Children’s Fund students and be beneficial for their long-term prospects and brighter future.
