Paola Gianasso Scholarship Fund, For Bachelor of Law (women only)

The  Paola Gianasso Scholarship which is full tuition for four years for a woman who is committed to being a lawyer, demonstrates scholastic ability, and needs financial assistance to attend law school at AUPP.

The late Paola Gianasso was a well-respected lawyer who dedicated her life to the empowerment of women, and believed in a world where women would be treated with equality and enjoy the same career opportunities and education that men have. Having passed away in March 2017 at age 53, her life’s work will still be able to have an effect on future generations. In her honor, her brother, Dr. Guido Gianasso, and a group of friends created the Paola Gianasso Scholarship Fund. This Scholarship Fund allows talented but underprivileged young Cambodian women to enter a Bachelor degree program at the prestigious American University of Phnom Penh (AUPP).

We are proud to be part of this initiative and would like to announce that applications are now open! If you are interested, please send a copy of your a copy of your High School diploma, and grade 12 exam results to the email address of the CLPD at Shortlisted applicants will be contacted for a face to face interview. This scholarship fund is open only to young women without financial means to attend university, and are passionate about studying law.

We look forward to hearing from you.Learn more about the Paola Gianasso Scholarship Fund here: For more information, call AUPP at 023 990 023.
