There is only one month left until the application deadline of the Lion’s Heart Scholarship awarded by the British University Vietnam (BUV) to disadvantaged students. This is the second year in a row that BUV has provided this scholarship in order to motivate and encourage talented young students to realise their academic dreams.
In July 2020, the first “Lion’s Heart” scholarship valued at VND1 billion was awarded to Nguyen Thi Oanh – a girl who had to pick up discarded bottles and wash dishes to earn money in order to provide care for three sick adult relatives, but she has always made great effort to overcome difficulties. Holding the belief that “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”, Oanh was determined to apply for BUV’s scholarship with the desire to continue her study and later to support her mother and fulfill the goal of opening a free nursing centre for lonely elderly people. Oanh wrote in her essay to BUV: “I believe that no matter how difficult life is, nothing is impossible as long as we know how to believe and make the effort. The value of each person is created by oneself”. Having passed the direct interview with the BUV Scholarship Panel, Oanh has proved her profound skills, spirit, efforts and excellently won the only scholarship that covers the entire tuition fees for English-for-university, Pathway courses, and an undergraduate course at BUV in addition to living and accommodation expenses for the duration of her study.
The undergraduate programmes at BUV are delivered in Vietnam and directly awarded by University of London and Staffordshire University – two prestigious UK public universities.
The Lion’s Heart Scholarship Programme was developed by BUV with the goal of encouraging and motivating students with physical, health, or family disadvantages to cultivate strong will, bravery, and extraordinary “fighting” spirit to overcome personal barriers, strive for excellence, and inspire positivity to those around them.
As part of BUV’s 2021 Scholarship Fund of up to VND53 billion, the Lion’s Heart Scholarship promotes BUV’s mission to provide high-quality British degrees and a world-class university campus in Vietnam and to create a new generation of discoverers, explorers and creative thinkers who are educated, trained, and prepared to thrive in future (4IR) fields of work and life.
The application submission deadline of the “Lion’s Heart Scholarship” programme is 5:00 p.m Monday, August 2, 2021.
