During the award ceremony, Khanh Nguyen, operations director for Jabil in Vietnam said, "We firmly believe in the transformative power of education. The cornerstone of the Jabil Vietnam Scholarship is the spirit to nurture a community of young, ambitious, and smart talent that will unlock and drive Vietnam’s future."

"In today’s rapidly evolving landscape, developing a strong talent pipeline for the long term gives Jabil a significant competitive advantage, ensuring there is always a pool of skilled talent who are ready to step into leadership positions. Additionally, by having the right people in place to drive growth and innovation, Jabil can respond more quickly to meet customers’ and the industry’s changing demands.”

First launched in 2022, the scholarship is conferred on outstanding university students in their third year and last year of studies in either science, engineering, technology, or business courses.

In this year’s cohort, 25 of the recipients are new to the sponsorship while five were from last year’s cohort (deserving students in their final year of studies). The award money will cover tuition and educational expenses, and scholars will also be offered training, internship, and career opportunities. The selection was based on academic performance, social, and financial circumstances.

The total value of the scholarships is estimated at around VND450 million ($18,500).

This year, Jabil worked with nine universities: Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology, University of Technical Education, International University, University of Economics and Law, University of Economics, University of Industry, University of Banking, University of Economics and Finance and Ton Duc Thang University. The programme received more than 800 applications and selected candidates were invited to undergo online English and ability tests, as well as face-to-face interviews.

Jabil also awarded 28 scholarships to its own employees in their quest for lifelong learning. The 2024 Jabil Vietnam Internal Scholarship Award covers two academic years and is estimated to be valued at around $31,000.

Gary Schick, senior vice president and chief human resources officer at Jabil said, “By providing employees with a structured development programme, we are helping our employees to pursue a meaningful career by accelerating the development of their leadership skills and supporting them with opportunities to learn from the best in their professional journey.”

Nguyen Thuy Nhat Thy, a recipient from Jabil’s Inventory Control Department said, "This programme motivates me and my colleagues to dig deeper and reach higher. As a result, we are clearer on our career aspirations for the future of Jabil in Vietnam.”
