Over the past 17 years (2002-2019), VietHope has supported nearly 2,800 Merit students. This number includes students who have received the Merit Scholarship award for more than one year (the most awarded students were sponsored for as long as 7 years).
Our award recipients have come from many rural areas throughout Vietnam:
- Southern Vietnam: Saigon outskirts, Ca Mau, Dong Thap, Khanh Hoa, Kien Giang, Tien Giang, Dong Nai
- Central Vietnam: Khanh Hoa, Hue, Quang Binh, and Ha Tinh.
- Northern Vietnam: Nam Dinh, Thai Binh, Ha Nam, Phu Tho, and Thai Nguyen.
As a result of our support, Merit students have completed schooling through 12th grade at a higher rate, and have entered into top universities where they continue to keep in touch with VietHope staff. Some universities that our students have been admitted to are the following:
- Can Tho University
- Ha Noi Polytechnic University
- Dong Thap General Education College
- Hue College of Medicine
- Ha Noi Foreign Trade University
- Foreign Trade University - HCMC campus
- VNU-HCMC University of Information Technology
- Posts and Telecommunication Institute of Technology - HCMC Campus
Since 2017, 39 Merit students who went to universities and colleges have been accepted to USP scholarship as an effort of program integration and youth development continuity.
