Study Abroad Opportunity in Vietnam

Established in 2003, the Vo Xuan Trang Memorial Scholarship is awarded each term to a student participating on a CET Vietnam program. In Spring 2012, two of these scholarships ($1500 each) will be available.

Students may submit scholarship applications concurrently with their online program application. Applications are evaluated with respect to academic achievement, strength of essay and recommendations letters, and financial need.

CET Vietnam is for challenge-loving students who seek something different from a term abroad. Students conduct service-learning projects at philanthropic organizations in Ho Chi Minh City. They tackle Vietnamese language in the classroom (8 hours per week) and explore their environs with a Vietnamese roommate. The program accepts students of all majors and language levels—from beginners to heritage learners.

CET Academic Programs is a study abroad organization based in Washington, DC that has been designing and administering innovative educational programs abroad since 1982. Originally “China Educational Tours,” CET began operations in Beijing, later expanding to other cities in China and then to other countries around the world. Today, CET offers semester and summer study abroad programs in China, the Czech Republic, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Syria and Vietnam, as well as short-term, customized programs worldwide. CET is known for high academic standards, innovative approaches to teaching and careful student management. CET programs integrate students into their overseas communities and lead them to create lasting relationships with their local hosts. CET is the only US provider to house its students with local roommates in each of its locations. As an environmentally conscientious organization, CET adopts locally appropriate measures in its centers worldwide to reduce its carbon footprint and contribute to sustainable practices wherever possible. Staffed by over 40 full-time employees in the United States and abroad, CET currently sends around 1000 US students abroad annually.

  1. Hi,

    Mandarin Chinese is becoming an increasingly popular language, and many foreign students are making their way to China to undertake Mandarin language study. It is very important to find an abroad study agency that is safe, reliable and legal to help you study mandarin in china as effectively as possible. Thanks a lot...
