Scholarship For Vietnamese Students
On the last semester of high school, a high percentage of the senior student body starts thinking about college seriously. Many of them often take into account scholarship options, both local and internationally. There are certain nation/background-specific options, and amongst the most popular are scholarships for Vietnamese student.
There are common requisites for applicants, amongst them: being a national of Vietnam (sometimes, of Vietnamese descent), having completed high-school with grades above average, and being proficient in English. Each university or financing organization, nevertheless, has particular demands. Subject-specific scholarships (for instance, scholarships granted to community-aiding youths) request the applicant to be involved in certain activities that transcend the school’s curriculum.
Some scholarships are directed to a very specific student. For instance, the ASEAN scholarships request the applicants to have been born between 1995 and 1997.
Regarding the students’ monetary aid, scholarships can go from a quarter coverage (25%) to a full coverage (100%). Often, a scholarship is limited to costs of tuition and housing, and matters such as food, text books, health care and transportation is at the student’s expenses. Sometimes, the awarding organization will just cover half or a quarter of the tuition fee, and grant the student a certain amount of money (often called an ‘allowance’) for other expenses.
More often than not, scholarships last throughout the student’s chosen career. Undergraduate scholarships extend for as long as five years (ten semesters), though most careers last only four years. In order to maintain the scholarship although, the student must maintain a minimum grade to be specified by the financing organization.
Nowadays, most applications are submitted directly on the particular scholarship’s website. This change is mostly due to the great reach possible through the world wide web, but there’s also an ecological factor since its not necessary to print the requests. In that accord, the requested documents (graduation certificate, legalized birth certificate, essays, resumes) need be scanned and attached to a form provided by the entity which offers the scholarship. Still, the norm is to offer both virtual and physical addresses to the applicants just in case.
