US Ambassador to Vietnam, H.E. Daniel J. Kritenbrink, recently joined AmCham Chairman and ACDL Executive Chairman Mr. Michael Kelly and other AmCham leaders in presenting awards to the 20 newest AmCham Scholars from eleven universities in Hanoi.

According to a representative from AmCham Hanoi, besides cash awards, AmCham Scholars are also supported by AmCham with job skills training, internships, and job placement assistance. They will join the AmCham Scholar Alumni Club to connect and exchange knowledge with winners from previous years.

Since last September, hundreds of students from Hanoi’s best universities have been competing to become AmCham Scholars. After submitting a profile video on YouTube, completing a 30-question written application, and taking an English language exam, the top 60 applicants then attended interviews with the AmCham Scholars Selection Committee.

As part of AmCham’s signature CSR program, the AmCham Scholars Program started nine years ago to recognize outstanding final-year undergraduate students in Hanoi who demonstrate leadership through academic performance, community involvement, and extracurricular activities, and possess good English-language skills. The number of Vietnamese students receiving the AmCham scholarship stands at 184.

The purpose of the program is to help AmCham members find high-quality future employees and to demonstrate AmCham’s long-term commitment to Vietnam and its young people.
