RMIT Vietnam has quadrupled the number of scholarships available this year as part of its annual scholarship program. 

The increase presents an opportunity for an extra 95 students to pursue their chosen field of study in a dynamic teaching environment while achieving an internationally recognised education

Applications are now open for outstanding high school graduates and current RMIT Vietnam students to apply for one of the 125 scholarships available.

The scholarships, which cover 25% to 100% in tuition fees, are offered in business, technology, design, communication, as well as fashion and textiles at both RMIT Vietnam Saigon South and Hanoi.

Applicants will be assessed on their academic performance as well as achievements in leadership and community service.

Successful scholarship recipients from the 2013 program included Ms Tang Ho Hong Diem who graduated with a GPA eight (out of ten) from Le Hong Phong School for the Gifted and is now studying a Bachelor of Design.

Ms Diem has recently been elected as president of the RMIT Vietnam Student Council.

Through the annual scholarship program, RMIT Vietnam aims to reinforce its ongoing commitment to fostering the country's professional and community leaders.

In 2009, a scholarship was awarded to Tran Dai Nghia High School for the Gifted graduate Trinh Hong Duc, who completed a Bachelor of Commerce and is now a Unit Manager at multinational Proctor & Gamble Vietnam.

RMIT Vietnam President Gael McDonald said over the past ten years, the university had invested in nearly 600 scholarships at total value of 90 billion VND.

"This year our program has grown significantly to increase the opportunity for more students to be rewarded for their exceptional academic, leadership and community achievements," Professor McDonald said.

"As well as the value of tuition fees saved, our scholarships enable students to experience all of the benefits on offer at RMIT Vietnam, including the global expertise and experience of our teaching team, our quality facilities and infrastructure, as well as our strong links with industry."

Scholarship program information sessions will be held from 9.00am to 11.00am on Sunday 11 May 2014 at RMIT Vietnam Saigon South and Hanoi with applications to be submitted before 5.00pm Monday 23 June 2014.
