There will be 64 scholarships for prospective undergraduate students, 18 scholarships for prospective graduate students, and 30 scholarships for current students.
The scholarships for prospective undergraduate students, which cover from 25 to 100 per cent of tuition fees, will be allocated across 13 different categories, including president’s scholars, academic achievement, international, opportunity, creativity, languages, technology, women in technology, logistics and supply chain management (Saigon South campus), professional communications, digital marketing (Hanoi campus), the Professor Nguyen Van Dao scholarship, and the Luke McLachlan scholarship.
President’s Scholars, the most prestigious scholarship which covers 100 per cent tuition fee, will be awarded to eight outstanding high school students who have achieved exemplary academic grades and demonstrated outstanding community engagement and leadership potential. The candidates will progress through two selection rounds, including application approvals by independent judges and an interview in English.
This year Creative Scholarships will provide opportunities for students to study undergraduate programs in design, design studies, and fashion (merchandise management). In addition to the application forms, students will have to submit a portfolio for assessment.
RMIT Vietnam president Gael McDonald said that the university’s annual scholarship programme is part of its effort to give back to the country and broader community.
“RMIT Vietnam operates under a not-for-profit model, with profits remaining in Vietnam and reinvested back into the university by presenting scholarships, improving teaching facilities, and sharing teaching methodologies with local universities,” McDonald said.
In the past 17 years, RMIT Vietnam has awarded more than 1,111 scholarships worth over VND272 billion ($11.8 million) to young people from all over Vietnam and around the world.
“Our approach to quality is driven by a focus on the student experience, and in particular on delivering digitally-enabled, industry-relevant, and work-integrated learning experiences,” she explained.
