Harpswell U.S. Fellows

U.S. Fellowships

Each year, Harpswell gives 2-3 scholarships for graduates to study for one year in the United States with our partner colleges and universities. In the past, Harpswell U.S. Fellows have attended Bowdoin College, Bard College, Northeastern University, Agnes Scott College, Rhodes College and Christian Brothers University. It is a fantastic opportunity for students to gain additional knowledge and experience for one year before returning to Cambodia to continue their personal and professional development. The bright and motivated Harpswell US Fellows are quickly recognized around campus, and bring intellectual curiosity and spirit to their classes and extracurricular activities. As of early 2020, 59% of US Fellows through the class of 2018 have gone on to graduate school.

“I love getting to know and learn from diverse people here, and I love to share my culture with them. I am the first person many CBU students have met from Cambodia. They love to ask me about my home. The food, the weather, and the culture is so different from the American way of life.” – U.S. Fellow
