Cambodia: Call for Project Proposals Under Global Britain Fund

The British Embassy in Phnom Penh is pleased to announce a Call for Project Proposals for the fiscal year 2017-18 under our Global Britain Fund.

The purpose of this fund is to support British Embassy areas of interest and activity. Our mission in Cambodia is to support democratic and sustainable development, improve the business environment and build support and capacity for future generations of Cambodia’s political and business leaders.

Specific areas of focus are:

  • Advancing and promoting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) education in Cambodia
  • Ensuring democratic, transparent and effectively monitored elections with a high level of participation (Commune and National)
  • Supporting outreach, education and legacy aspects of the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC)
  • Business opportunities in renewable energies, e/commerce (particularly around street address mapping) and Technical and Vocational Educational Training (TVET)

We are looking for creative and original project ideas which could help us achieve any of the above goals. Successful bids will be for innovative activities that will have the greatest impact and deliver real change. We are less interested in proposals which focus purely on seminars, workshops or the production of research reports as ends in themselves. Instead, proposals should include action-oriented ideas which will bring about concrete outcomes.


Project budgets should be for a single year for activities undertaken over the period April 2017 to March 2018, up to a maximum cost of £80,000. We are unable to fund multiple-year projects.

Projects not eligible for funding:

Projects focussed on service delivery or projects that support military, religious affairs, construction activities, capital costs, or mainly staff salaries are ineligible.

How to apply:

Interested implementers are invited to submit their Project Concept Form and Activity Based Budget (ABB) to the embassy by 3 March 2017. The Project Concept and Activity Based Budget forms can be downloaded below:
