Khmer Language and Culture Study Program: Summer in Cambodia

Graffiti in Cambodia

Delve deep into Khmer language and culture in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.

The CKS Khmer Language and Culture Study Program (KLCP) provides an opportunity for faculty, post-graduate researchers and undergraduates from U.S. universities to participate in an intensive eight-week study abroad program in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, Cambodia. 

This program is administered in collaboration with the University of Hawai’i, Mānoa. The program is designed for those who wish to develop Khmer language skills and an understanding of contemporary Cambodian society for academic and professional purposes, but who have not completed two years of formal language training. Beginners are welcome to apply.

The program is intended to complement Hawaii’s Advanced Study in Khmer (ASK) program and is structured along similar lines.

CKS will cover the costs of tuition, administration, and local travel on field visits for participants. Participants are responsible for their international travel and living expenses including accommodations and food during the program.

Application Deadline

Applications to the Advanced Studies of Khmer Program are due at the end of February. 

Specific dates and details regarding the application can be found on this page
