Meanwhile every university in Japan was or is preoccupied and enjoy the honor of preparing the entrance ceremonies for the new students enrolling in April academic year, Cambodian Students Association in Nagoya (CSAN) was also proud of being able to welcome new Cambodian students who just arrived Nagoya two weeks ago.
Through a simple, but joyful gathering in the evening of Wednesday, 8 April 2009, CSAN could introduce 6 new Cambodian scholars to its new members. Four students are granted scholarship through MEXT, another is through Asian Youth Fellowship program (AYF), while the other got the scholarship from Asian Development Bank (ADB). Three of the MEXT scholars and AYF scholar are now enrolled as the research students at the Graduate School of International Development (GISD), meanwhile another MEXT student becomes the research student at Graduate School of Law. The ADB scholar is the Master’s Student of GSID from this spring semester.
Although they start to be occupied with their academic lives in their respective departments where they belong, they show their enthusiasm in contributing to the better community of CSAN. All of the six new comers volunteer to practice dances for the performances for upcoming Khmer New Year celebration in Nagoya University. Their contribution is comparatively as a generator to light up the hope for CSAN in its bid for the promotion of the developing Cambodia among international students in Japan.
CSAN would like to welcome them and is ready to extend further helps for their daily lives, and at the same time, all of their seniors are ready to learn new things from them and share experiences with them, too.
