Full or partial scholarships to be offered for range of studies and to students of all nationalities.
RMIT Vietnam will grant 112 scholarships in 2016 to current and prospective students, irrespective of nationality.
Valued at more than VND31 billion ($1.4 million) in total, the scholarships will be allocated in nine categories.
Covering 100, 50 or 25 per cent of tuition fees, the scholarships are being offered for studies in fields such as business, technology, design, communications, fashion (merchandising management), as well as logistics and supply chain management at RMIT Vietnam Saigon South or Hanoi City campus.
RMIT Vietnam President Professor Gael McDonald emphasized the expansion of the scholarship program to students of different nationalities attending high school in Vietnam.
“Vietnamese students or students from different countries who complete Grade 12 in Vietnam will be able to apply for this year’s scholarship program,” Ms. Mc Donald said. “In the first semester of 2016 the university welcomed a record number of international students, with more than 230 from 34 countries.”
“Through the scholarship program’s new initiatives, the university wants to become a destination for many more international students in order to create a real multicultural and global learning environment.”
“The two fashion scholarships, which cover 50 per cent of tuition fees, are open exclusively to students who have demonstrated a flair in creativity, marketing and/or business in the field of fashion. The two new full tuition doctoral scholarships for Vietnamese women announced in March are also a new initiative in this year’s scholarship program.”
RMIT Vietnam also has a new initiative to provide opportunities for students in particular regions to pursue higher education. This year it will grant two partial scholarships to students in Da Nang and Quang Ninh.
Applications for the 2016 scholarships must be submitted before 5pm (GMT+7) on July 15, 2016.
