HCM CITY (VNS) — More than 120 Vietnamese students will begin post-graduate studies in Australia early next year under a scholarship programme funded by that country.

The winners of the Australia Awards, a prestigious international award targeting the next generation of global leaders, include six people each with disabilities and belonging to ethnic minorities.

More than 5,000 Vietnamese students have received long- and short-term training opportunities in Australia since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries in 1973.

Australia has offered a total of 139 scholarships to Vietnamese students for 2016. — VNS
