The Vietnam Education Foundation (VEF) is pleased to announce the 2013 VEF Fellowship Program. The Fellowship application and selection process is open, competitive, and transparent. Applicants do not need to pay any fees to anyone in order to apply or be considered for a VEF Fellowship. Winners are chosen based on individual merit, including academic performance and preparation, intellectual capabilities, English proficiency, and the potential for contribution to scientific education and research.

VEF expects to award up to 45 Fellowships to Vietnamese nationals to begin graduate studies in the United States in the fall of 2013. The recipients are referred to as the VEF Fellowship 2013 Cohort. Please note that VEF only accepts online applications.
