Scholarships for students in Hanoi and HCMC facing financial difficulties.

by Tue Lam

Deloitte Vietnam and ACCA Vietnam (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) have jointly held the 2017 Lighting up Your Future Scholarship Award Ceremony in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

The special scholarship fund is for potential university students in business, economics, finance, banking, accounting and auditing who experience financial difficulties while studying at university in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City.

Established by Deloitte Vietnam and ACCA Vietnam in April 2012 to support university students to overcome financial difficulties and provide them with a strong foundation for their career pathway, over the last five years the scholarship program has supported thousands of students at university in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City and offered scholarships to 215 students, with a total value of some VND1 billion ($44,000) each year.

After four years, 100 per cent of students receiving the scholarship were employed, 70 per cent of which are working for companies in the fields of accounting, auditing, finance and banking and 30 per cent for huge corporations in other economic sectors. One student was offered a job at a major auditing firm in the US.

In 2017, 51 students were offered the scholarship, with a total value of VND1.3 billion ($57,200). Each is worth VND25 million ($1,100), including VND3 million ($132) in cash and VND7 million ($308) for professional development training.

Recipients can also register for the F3 - Financial Accounting subject at ACCA’s international professional program, and can participate in Deloitte’s special summer internship program and soft skills' training courses worth VND15 million ($660).
