US, Vietnam Celebrate Advances to Higher Education in STEM Fields
“Through USAID’s BUILD-IT public-private alliance, the U.S. government is advancing a shared goal with Vietnam to improve higher education and prepare students to be successful in today’s global economy,” said USAID/Vietnam Mission Director Aler Grubbs.
“Together, we harnessed common aspirations and commitment across industry, government, and universities to modernize STEM education, driving economic growth in Vietnam,” he added.
Started in 2015, the $8.7 million BUILD-IT project leveraged government, private sector, and academic partners' vast capabilities to build strategic leadership skills, advance university autonomy, improve program and instructional quality, and sustain lasting partnerships with the private sector. The project achieved lasting impact through partnering with eight higher education institutions in Vietnam such as Can Tho University, University of Da Nang - University of Science and Technology, etc.
Accordingly, 121 educational programs received regional and international accreditation, and about 4,600 students benefited from project-based curricula activities. Besides, 4,000 university leaders and staff improved their skills in the areas of leadership, strategy, curriculum, and partnerships with industry.

The United States and Vietnam are celebrating the ten-year anniversary of their Comprehensive Partnership in 2023. USAID’s investments in higher education underscore the United States’ commitment to the future of Vietnam and the enduring nature of the U.S.-Vietnam partnership.
