Fifty-two Vietnamese people have won Australia Awards Scholarship.
The Australian Government actively encourages and supports people with disabilities, from disadvantaged rural areas and from ethnic minorities to participate in the Australia Awards. As a result, this group of awardees includes three people with disabilities and four from ethnic minority groups.
Australia Awards are prestigious international scholarships and fellowships funded by the Australian Government. They offer the next generation of global leaders an opportunity to undertake study, research and professional development.
The Australia Awards Scholarships are part of a broader investment by the Australian Government, Aus4Skills, which includes Australia Awards Short Courses and informal learning opportunities to address knowledge and skills gaps to help Viet Nam realise its aspirations to become a prosperous and socially inclusive country.
Since 1973, Australia has worked with Viet Nam to provide scholarships to outstanding Vietnamese students, helping Viet Nam to build its human resources.
The new scholars are the latest of over 6,000 Vietnamese students who have received Australian Government scholarships. — VNS
