United States Ambassador Daniel J. Kritenbrink joined AmCham Chairman Michael Kelly and other AmCham leaders in presenting awards to the newest group of AmCham Scholars on Saturday morning.
Final-year students from 11 universities in Hanoi received the awards as part of AmCham’s signature CSR program. The AmCham Scholars Program started nine years ago to recognize outstanding final-year undergraduate students in Hanoi who demonstrate leadership through academic performance, community involvement, extracurricular activities, and possess good English-language skills. The purpose of the program is to help our members find high-quality future employees and to demonstrate AmCham’s long-term commitment to Vietnam and its young people.
Since last September, hundreds of students from Hanoi’s best universities have been competing to become AmCham Scholars. After submitting a profile video on YouTube, completing a 30-question written application, and taking an Englishlanguage exam, the top 60 applicants participated in interviews with the AmCham Scholars Selection Committee.
