Why does your organisation partner with Chevening?
Funded by the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), the Chevening Scholarships programme provides prestigious awards to enable talented Vietnamese, in both the public and the private sectors, to take up post-graduate study (up to one year) at British Universities.
This programme is targeted at talented young Vietnamese with the potential to become future leaders.
PVA has been a key sponsor of this programme with the aim of supporting the British government’s educational initiative and to demonstrate Prudential’s corporate and social responsibility in Vietnam. PVA have sponsored a total of 32 Chevening Scholars since 1997.
‘I am writing to express my gratitude to the Chevening Scholarships Secretariat. This gratitude also goes to the Prudential whose kindness gave me a chance to experience British education.
‘2017 was probably the best year of my life, since I was fortunate to meet thousands of friends around the world. Not only did I learn from them but I also introduced Vietnamese culture to them. As a zealous graduate who wishes to follow a career in education, I believe that my study in the UK definitely benefited my pathway.
‘Once again, thank you to Prudential for being at the heart of my trip to the United Kingdom. I hope that I could accompany the development of the company in order to inspire more young people.’
