PANO – The US Embassy in Hanoi is organizing a summer camp for the recipients of the English Access Microscholarship Program in Cat Ba, Hai Phong city from August 13th to 16th.


The Access Summer Camp 2010 will bring together 16 current participants in the English Access Microscholarship Program in a series of academic workshops designed to develop the students’ English skills, social skills and volunteerism.


Several English teachers in Vietnam on the Fulbright Scholarship Program, along with NGO leaders and Vietnamese university students who have participated in other US Government-sponsored exchange programs will also join the summer camp.


The current 16 Access students are talented students from the lower secondary schools in the suburban districts of Hanoi.


This is Vietnam’s first group of Access students since the scholarship program was inaugurated in Vietnam in 2009.


The students were selected from 40 applicants via a competitive and fair selection process that included nominations by applicants’ schools, clearance by the Hanoi Department of Education and Training, as well as interviews by the US Embassy in Hanoi.


Funded by the US Government, the English Access Microscholarship Program provides a foundation of English language skills to talents aged 14 to 18 years who come from disadvantaged sectors through after school classes and intensive sessions.  The program also provides participants the opportunity to increase their ability to participate successfully in the socio-economic development of their countries, and to improve their chances of participating in US educational exchange programs in the future.
