Toshiba Scholarship Program was signed between VNU and Toshiba Corporation in 2005. Over the past 16 years, VNU and Toshiba Scholarship Foundation have successfully organized 13 scholarship programs and scientific seminars. Three hundred VNU’s graduate students have been awarded the Toshiba scholarships amounting to about 20,000,000 JPY, equivalent to 4,300,000,000 VND.
