HCMC – The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has launched the Project for Human Resource Development Scholarship by Japanese Grant Aid (JDS), offering 45 full scholarships to young and competent Vietnamese public employees for the 2023-2025 course.
Vietnamese public employees can now apply for the JDS program funded by the Government of Japan through official development assistance. The application deadline is February 27.
A full scholarship includes tuition fees, flight tickets, monthly scholarships and other allowances.
The JDS program provides a two-year master’s course in various study fields, including economics, urban development/transport, energy, agriculture, environment, human resource development for industrial development, healthcare/social security, legal system and public administration at Japanese colleges and universities.
The courses at graduate schools will be taught in English, so JDS fellows are supposed to write a thesis in English.
Since its launch in Vietnam in 2000, the program has offered 771 scholarships to Vietnamese employees.
