The combined total value of the scholarship program is over USD $400,000.
Awarded students can study at RMIT Viet Nam’s Ha Noi or Saigon South campuses.
This year, one of the scholarship winners is Nong Phu Tai, of Tay ethnic minority group, from Cao Bang province. Tai achieved good academic results and won several prizes at both provincial and national levels.
In his essay for scholarship, Tai wrote “… After many years studying in school, through media and real life experience, I have realized the problems and difficulties of Viet Nam in general and Cao Bang in particular. For this reason, I always try my best in my studies. I achieved some good academic results and prizes but these achievements really did not satisfy me. I have never stopped to exert myself and wish to fly higher and further in the sky of knowledge. I am eager for learning and making a contribution to the cause of development and prosperity of my motherland. It was through the media that I got to know RMIT Viet Nam’s professional education and I am avid to experience the educational environment at an international university…”
The successful applicants must meet the English and academic requirements and show proof of their social activities.
Scholarship winners had an average mark over 8.0 and the highest was 9.8. Most of the winners will commence studying on 11 September 2006.
