Six Cambodian Students to Study in the U.S. as Fulbright Scholars

Six outstanding young Cambodians are starting graduate studies in the United States as Fulbright Scholars, the premier exchange program of the State Department.

“Fulbright is a life-changing experience for me and I am looking forward to acquiring new knowledge, assimilating into diverse cultures, and traveling throughout the states as much as possible,” said Sothidaneath Theam, who will work on a master’s degree in economics at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee.

The other Fulbright students are Pichmony Ek, who will work on a doctorate in food science at Washington State University; Nguon Lim, who will study for a MBA at Fairleigh Dickinson University; Julina Mam, who will study for a master’s degree in comparative and international education at Lehigh University; Sakona Naim, who will study for a master of law degree at Georgetown University; and Sokheang Thea, who will study for a master’s degree in civil engineering at Purdue University.

Congratulations and good luck!
