The Embassy of Vietnam in New Delhi on March 17 has signed Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) with three Indian institutions for the establishment of 2021 Ambassadors scholarship programme for Vietnamese students to study undergraduate and postgraduate courses, reported Hindustan Times.
The three institutions are Integral University (Lucknow), Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology (Bhubaneshwar) and Rishihood University (Sonepat).
"Our objective is to stimulate and facilitate the development of collaborative and mutually beneficial programs which serve to enhance the intellectual life and cultural development of both countries, and to contribute to increased international cooperation between India and Vietnam,” said Ambassador of Vietnam to India Pham Sanh Chau.
According to the MoUs, Vietnam nationals can apply for 2021 Ambassador's undergraduate, masters and PhD Scholarship tenable in India for four courses commencing in September or October 2021.
Vietnamese students are not required to pay any application fee. Each scholarship provides approved tuition fees as well as accommodation and meal costs on campus.
According to the Vietnam's Embassy, 2021 Ambassadors scholarship programme includes 113 scholarships for Vietnamese students coming to India to study bachelor, master, and doctoral programs at four Indian universities, including Integral University (Lucknow), Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology (Bhubaneshwar), Rishihood University (Sonepat) and Sharda University (Noida).
The programme's highlight is 13 fully-funded scholarships and 10 full-tuition scholarships. In addition, with the working efforts of the Embassy, the application process of Vietnamese students will be simplified.
The 2021 Ambassador Scholarship Program gives priority to students with difficult circumstances, ethnic minority, and students from disadvantaged groups. For such priority subjects, the program has a number of scholarships that do not require candidates to have an international English certificate to reduce the financial burden. Document translation steps are partly supported by the Embassy.
