The gift hopes to motivate recipients of the scholarship to excel academically and in turn, become future talents of Vietnam and contribute to the society’s development. After discussions and understanding of VNU’s holistic University environment, JC&C was pleased to sign the agreement with VNU UEB which will represent the two remaining VNU member universities to co-ordinate this scholarship in this academic year (2019/20).
A total of 12 scholarships will be given out (two scholarships each year) for outstanding students in the Honors program; each Scholarship will fully subsidy the tuition fees of each recipient.
After being chosen for the scholarship, each recipient must maintain a GPA of 3.2 out of 4.0 and exhibit good conduct, following the requirements of the University and the donor.
