Center for Khmer Studies Summer Junior Fellowship

The Center for Khmer Studies is offering fellowships for its Summer Junior Fellowship Program for American, Cambodian (and presumably French) undergraduates. The link on the website is provides information for American undergraduates who are eligible for the fellowship; Cambodian undergraduates are also eligible for this fellowship and the information is available after the jump. The fellowship is presumably open to French students as well, although I can’t find any information about that at the moment.
