Background about the AmCham Scholarship Program 2014

Since 2001, AmCham has cooperated with Vietnam National University – Ho Chi Minh City (VNU-HCM) and more recently Banking University, Foreign Trade University in Ho Chi Minh City, Ho Chi Minh City University of Law, Hoa Sen University and Ho Chi Minh City University of Technical Education to grant scholarships to top students including: University of Technology, University of Science, University of Social Sciences and Humanities, University of Economics and Law, University of Information Technology, International University, Banking University, Foreign Trade University, Law University, and Hoa Sen University. Recently, in 2012, the AmCham Scholarship has opened to the students of the Ho Chi Minh City University of University of Technical Education with a view to supporting and encouraging students with technical majors in their learning. This year, the number of scholarships awarded as well as number of universities remain the same.

To date, AmCham has awarded 360 scholarships and 206 honorable mention awards. During the past 13 years, many AmCham Scholars have continued their studies, and have earned 40 Masters and 56 PhD degrees. Many of them are now working at AmCham companies such as GE, PepsiCo, BAT, HSBC, Unilever, KPMG, and others.
