Fulbright University Vietnam is opening the second admissions cycle for its Class of 2024. This Spring cycle starts on January 15 and closes on April 1, 2020, and the results will be announced in late May.
Applications for Financial Aid will be assessed simultaneously. Instead of merit-based scholarships, Fulbright offers need-based financial aid, for which the students’ financial capability is the sole determinant in offering aid to cover up to 100 per cent of the tuition as well as room and board fees. All applicants must fill out the information required in the financial aid application form.
The admissions portal for Fulbright’s Undergraduate Class of 2024 is open at: https://apply.fulbright.edu.vn, no application fee required.
Those who can apply during this Spring Cycle include twelve-graders attending high schools in the country; high school graduates who have not yet obtained a bachelor’s degree; and students who applied in the previous Priority Cycle but have not finished their admission and/or financial aid application or were not selected for the interview rounds.
This is the first year Fulbright organizes two admissions cycles: the Priority Cycle, and the Spring Cycle. The Spring Cycle is an opportunity for the students who missed the first cycle, or who did not pass the first round of application assessment. They can now revise, adjust, or add supporting details, and thus bolster their application to make it more convincing to Fulbright’s Admissions and Financial Aid officers.
Ms. Le Thi Quynh Tram emphasizes the comprehensiveness, fairness and transparency of the evaluation of each and every application. Having designed the application process, Ms. Tram asserts it is unique and might be unfamiliar to some, but it is not difficult. Rather than implementing a rigid formula, officers make decisions very carefully on a case-by-case basis, which means students will not be selected or denied based solely on scores on their transcripts.
