Deloitte Vietnam and the Association of Certified Chartered Accountants (ACCA) Vietnam have jointly organized the “2018 Lighting up your Future Scholarship Awards Ceremony”, a special scholarship fund for high potential university students in business, economics, finance, banking, accounting and auditing who may experience financial difficulties while studying at university in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

Sixty students were chosen this year for scholarships totaling more than VND1.5 billion ($64,300). Each scholarship is in the range of VND25 million ($1,070), including VND3 million ($130) in cash and VND7 million ($300) to go towards training courses for professional development. Recipients will also be free to register for the F3 - Financial Accounting subject in ACCA’s international professional program, as well as participate in Deloitte’s special summer internship program and “soft skills” training courses worth VND15 million ($645).

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, during the past six years the scholarship program has supported thousands of students at university in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City and offered scholarships to 275 students with a total value of up to VND7 billion ($300,300) per year.

After six years, 95.8 per cent of students receiving the scholarship are now employed, 70 per cent of whom work for companies in the fields of accounting, auditing, finance, and banking, and 30 per cent for groups or corporations in other economic sectors. One student was offered a job in a large auditing firm in the US.
