This letter is to introduce the Australian Scholarships for Development
in Vietnam (ASDiV) Program.
The ASDiV Program is key component of the Australia-Vietnam Development
Cooperation Program funded through the Australian International Aid
Agency (AusAID) in partnership with the Ministry of Education and Training.
In Vietnam the ASDiV Program manages two scholarship programs, the
Australian Development Scholarships (ADS) and the Australian Leadership
Awards (ALA) under the Australian Government’s international scholarship
program – the Australia Awards.
The ADS scholarship program aims to respond to the priority human
resource development needs of Vietnam and in doing so contribute to
economic growth and poverty reduction.
Under the ADS program in Vietnam, 225 scholarships at Masters, Doctorate
and Undergraduate (in exceptional circumstances) levels will be
awarded each year for eligible candidates. This is a 50% increase in the
number of scholarships over previous years. This year, the ADS
applications will open on 15 June and close on 30 July 2010.
Under the ADS program, special attention is being focused on developing
human resource capacity in rural areas, especially in provinces with
high levels of poverty and a large ethnic minority population. Thus a
significant proportion of scholarships are to be awarded to qualified
applicants, from both government and non-government sectors, whose work
in the provinces contributes to economic development, improved
governance and better services for the rural poor. There will be five
Profiles of applicants of which Profile 2 suits staff of NGOs
With this in view ADSiV are planning to make a briefing information on
11 June at 9:00 am at Army Hotel 33 C Pham Ngu Lao in order to introduce
the ADS program to NGO human resource officers and other interested
parties from the non-government sector. (Contact person for
