Honda Y-E-S Award in Vietnam
Partnership with The National Institute for Science and Technology Policy and Strategy Studies (NISTPASS) and Honda Vietnam Co., Ltd.

Objective

The country was undergoing rapid economic growth, expressing a strong interest in Japan and was experiencing a rapid increase in direct foreign capital investment. The per capita GDP was still slightly over $600, lacking the economic power needed for study in Japan vis-à-vis the strong level of interest. The program started in 2006 for balanced development of the next generation of leaders.

Stage One: Y-E-S Award

We award ten best undergraduate students selected from the affiliated universities colleges in Vietnam with a prize grant worth US$3,000.

Stage Two: Y-E-S Award Plus

All Y-E-S Award awardees become eligible for the Y-E-S Award Plus, a non-restricted scholarship fund if, within four years after they received the Y-E-S Award, they are admitted to either of the following:

【1】A master’s or doctoral course at a Japanese graduate school under the auspices (sponsorship) of the Japanese government. These students will receive US$10,000 as the Y-E-S Award Plus.

【2】Internship program offered by a Japanese university, research institute, or company—a program between over ten weeks. These students will receive US$7,000 as the Y-E-S Award Plus.

Additionally, if they come to Japan again after the internship for a master's or doctoral course, they will receive a preparation fee $3,000 as the Y-E-S Award Plus Expansion.
