Fulbright Co-Op Program

October 28, 2019

The Fulbright Co-Op Program is seeking young “colleagues” (grade 11 and 12 students) who are currently residing in Ho Chi Minh City. Within one to two weeks, the Co-Ops will have the opportunity to experience a professional working environment in one of Fulbright departments (Office of President, Communications, Admissions, Student Life, Human Resources, Center of Entrepreneurship and Innovation).  

Each department will provide a different working time frame and project. Some examples of the various Co-Op projects are: 

  • President’s Office: Prepare logistics for a “VIP” event, guest-speaker to be disclosed. 
  • Communications: Participate in building content for Fulbright social media platforms. 
  • Student Life: Organize a mini-sports tournament for high schools and universities within Ho Chi Minh City. 
  • Admissions: Plan an outreach program that brings Fulbright closer to your community. 
  • Human Resources: Acquire new skills regarding human resources management. 
  • Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation: Learn about market research methods and what the entrepreneurship and innovation in Vietnam looks like today. 

*Please note: There is no Co-Op position at any department that requires a full-time, on-campus commitment from students. Students have the opportunity to work from home and come to work at least 1 to at most 5 days a week (depending on the students’ schedule and requirements for the department). Students may also be required to go to campus for 1 full day on a weekend in order to partake in skills-training workshops led by Fulbright specialists.  

Benefits of Fulbright Co-Ops: 

  • Understanding how different departments operate and what skills are necessary to take on new and challenging roles 
  • Priority participation in future Fulbright programs, through which the students can acquire communication, leadership and project management skills, as well as experience the Fulbright spirit 
  • Exclusive participation in skills-training workshop led by Fulbright specialists
