The Vietnam Education Foundation (VEF), an independent US Government agency, has announced its invitation for candidates for its scholarship programmes in the next two years.

Accordingly, Vietnamese citizens who want to pursue graduate and post-graduate studies in the fields of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine are invited to apply for 43 scholarships in the VEF’s 2015 Fellowship and Visiting Scholar Programmes.

Beside, its US Scholar Programme will provide at least one scholarship for US professors to teach in the same fields of study in Vietnam.

Created by the US Congress, the VEF receives an annual budget of 5 million USD until 2018, with the aim to strengthen the Vietnam-US bilateral relationship through educational exchanges.
