A ceremony awarding Hessen scholarships to 66 outstanding students from Hanoi and neighbouring provinces was held at Van Mieu (Temple of Literature) in Hanoi on October 5.

Hessen State Governor Volker Bouffier, German Ambassador to Vietnam Jutta Frasch, President of the World University Service of Germany (WUS) Kambiz Ghawami, and Vietnamese Deputy Minister of Education and Training,Tran Quang Quy were all present at the ceremony.  

Quy acknowledged the assistance the state of Hessen has offered to Vietnamese education and training and expressed his hope that bilateral relations will develop further in all areas of mutual concern.

Similar ceremonies presenting scholarships to outstanding students in Thai Nguyen, the central region, the central highlands, and the Mekong River Delta will be held early 2013.

 The scholarships’ beneficiaries are disadvantaged students, including those who are children of wounded soldiers, children of martyrs, and members of ethnic minorities. They actively participate in a range of social initiatives like blood donation, youth voluntary programmes, and supporting the victims of floods and natural disasters. 

The scholarships are part of the cooperative agreement between the Vietnamese Ministry of Education and Training, the Hessian Ministry for Science and the Arts, and the WUS. 

Around 150 outstanding Vietnamese students experiencing difficulties will be awarded a Hessen scholarship in the 2012-2013 academic year. 

More than 3,000 Vietnamese students have received such scholarships since 1991.
