New incentives for authors of Khmer HE resources

Cambodia’s Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport and Ministry of Economy and Finance started an initiative to provide financial support to writers and researchers in higher education through a “research, creativity and innovation” programme that will author textbooks for use in higher education, writes Voun Dara for The Phnom Penh Post.

Education ministry spokesman Ros Soveacha said the funding initiative is intended to aid students by creating sufficient resources for the study of topics in higher education in the Khmer language.

He reiterated that the purpose of these programmes was to boost the overall quantity and quality of higher education textbooks available in Khmer. It will also help to remedy a lack of resources in higher education for studying in the Khmer language, which hinders students and researchers.
