(CPV) - The Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Embassy in Hanoi and Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City are currently seeking candidates for the 2012 Global Undergraduate Exchange Programme.

Funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, the Global Undergraduate Exchange Programme provides scholarships for one semester or one academic year, enabling undergraduate students to study in a non-degree programme.

First through third year undergraduate students with a good command of English who demonstrate leadership through academic work, community involvement and extracurricular activities are invited to apply for the programme. The application deadline is 5 pm on November 28, 2011.

In the 2012 - 2013 academic year, the programme will place approximately 90 students from countries in Asia at U.S. colleges and universities, starting in August 2012 or January 2013. Up to eight scholarships are available for Vietnamese students. Scholarships are for either one academic-year (approximately 10 months) or one semester (approximately five months).

The length of the scholarship award will depend upon the student’s interests and availability, as well as placement options and availability of funds. In addition, participants will be eligible for two to four weeks of intensive English language instruction in the United States prior to the start of the academic portion of their programme.

The goal of the programme is to provide a diverse group of emerging student leaders with a substantive exchange experience at a U.S. college or university.
