The scholarships are part of an education cooperation agreement signed between Vietnam and the Russian Federation.

The Vietnamese Ministry of Education and Training and the Russian Cooperation Agency represented by the Russian Centre for Culture and Science in Vietnam announced that they have begun to recruit candidates for the scholarship programme.

Beneficiaries are those who want to do a bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, doctor’s degree or to serve an internship at hospitals. Candidates are required to attend a pre-sessional course on the Russian language before undertaking training.

Education is one of the effective cooperation areas between Vietnam and Russia. Tens of thousands of Vietnamese people have studied in Russia, and many of them have held key posts in State agencies upon their return to the homeland.

During high-level meetings, leaders of the two countries have agreed to increase education cooperation, including the exchange of students and human resource training in the areas of Russian strength and Vietnamese needs.

Last year, Russia granted 965 scholarships to Vietnamese students.
