Future activities and schedule of CSAC

While CSAC SC and EC believe that these services are important for Khmer students as a whole and should be focused on, we admit our individual study load and limited numbers of team players. CSAC attentions and limited resources will shift to the following:





A meeting with students Report details of CSAC activities and seek feedback from students. Date is TBA.


Create a scholarship advisory team. CSAC explored some potential services for students in regarding to scholarship: possible ways to increase numbers of scholarship available for Cambodians, feasible approach to collect available scholarships and related information, ways of improving applicants chances of winning a scholarship, and preparing before commence study in Australia.

This team is to be run on as a trail and learning basis. The learned lessons will be presented and be decided on its continuity in a meeting.


Pay the Cambodian embassy a visit Possibly in mid June 2010.
