Vingroup Scholarship Program launches partnership with Australian National University

The Australian National University (ANU) and the Vingroup Science and Technology Scholarship Program for Overseas Study for Masters and Doctoral Degrees have just reached an agreement to jointly support talented Vietnamese students to pursue graduate degree programs in science and technology fields. Under the terms of this agreement, both sides will  provide support to sponsor the Vingroup Scholars to undertake their post graduate degrees at ANU.

The Scholarship Program is an initiative of Vingroup, the largest private conglomerate in Vietnam. The mission of the Program is to develop young talented students so that they can lead and advance the development of science and technology in Vietnam in the future. VinUniversity, the first private, not-for-profit university in Vietnam, is managing the Scholarship Program.

With this partnership, VinUniversity/Vingroup Scholarship Program has established official collaboration with 7 targeted universities in Australia– 6 of which are in the Group of 8 (Go8) – Australia’s most prestigious and research-intensive universities. Renowned for its exceptional teaching and research, ANU is Australia’s #1 university and is ranked 30 in the world by the QS World University Rankings 2023.

We are delighted to be partnering with Vingroup to support Vietnamese students with their studies at a leading global university, the Australian National University. The new agreement is an indication of the strengthening of our global engagement and presence and we are looking forward to welcoming recipients of the scholarship to study with us in future.

Since the inception of the Scholarship Program in 2019, almost 140 Vietnamese outstanding students have been awarded the scholarships to study at 35 leading universities in the world. Among them, 5 have attended ANU. To take part in the program, these students must pass through two rigorous admissions processes—one by Vingroup and the second by ANU—to ensure that candidates have fulfilled all admissions requirements for the university and for the courses they plan to study.

The official collaboration between VinUni and ANU in the Vingroup Scholarship Program will pave the way for more Vingroup Scholars to study at ANU. This act of commitment also sets the foundation for potential cooperation opportunities between VinUni and ANU, especially in the domain of educational co-operation.
