This year, the programme awarded both full and partial scholarships for students majoring in economics, business management, accounting and auditing, and finance and banking at major universities in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi who desire to pursue an ACCA diploma. The full scholarships are worth $1,450 each, while the partial ones are valued at $400 each.
These scholarships have already included additional fees such as registration fees for account creations, and others. The full scholarship also includes fees for all nine basic courses of the ACCA Diploma. Furthermore, students are offered the opportunity to go directly to the final interview round of the internship programme at companion enterprises, such as KPMG, PwC, Techcombank, and Unilever.
On this occasion, the British Consul General also granted a scholarship to Bui Pham Minh Duy – a graduate student at Foreign Trade University Campus II – who won the future financial leader for the best composition. The scholarship covers the full tuition fee of ACCA’s first nine courses and the degree certificate accredited by ACCA and the British Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City with many other privileges.
