7 billion scholarship for beautiful female students

Planning to study abroad at an early age, so as soon as she passed the English class of Hanoi - Amsterdam High School for the Gifted, Nguyen Yen Lan divided her time for studying, preparing for SAT, IELTS and participating. the most suitable extracurricular activities.

In March 2019, Yen Lan took the SAT for the first time and only got 1,470 points. Not satisfied with this score, I continued to study for the exam and raised my SAT score to 1,540. Lan also achieved a perfect score of 800/800 SAT II and 8.0 IELTS.

During the 2020-2021 enrollment period, Yen Lan applied for scholarships to 18 universities. In April 2021, a Hanoi female student was admitted to the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn), one of eight prestigious Ivy League schools in the US, with a scholarship of nearly 7 billion VND for four years of university.

In addition to the University of Pennsylvania, Yen Lan was granted scholarships by 6 other schools and sent admission letters, including Richmond University and Beloit University.

Getting a scholarship from the University of Pennsylvania is not easy. This year's enrollment period, the school received a record high number of applications, more than 56,000. This makes the acceptance rate of candidates very low, only 5.68%, or more than 3,200 students.

Not only excelling during high school, Yen Lan actively participated in extracurricular activities. She used to be the secretary of the branch, head of the PR department of the Society of Open Science Club (the largest Science Club in the school), Vice President of The Intermediaries Cultural Club, a PR member of the GART6520 Robot Club and the Board of Directors. LaMode Fashion Club Template. In addition, Lan entered the top 20 of the Ams Ambassador 2020 contest…

For this female student, the experiences and skills gained from extracurricular activities have helped her a lot in the process of applying for scholarships, as well as choosing a major. I decided to choose Cognitive Science, a very broad field, combining many disciplines including Psychology, Philosophy, and Computer Science.

In fact, each school selects students according to their own criteria, not just grades. Researching the school thoroughly and writing essays as well as having extracurricular activities that match the school's criteria is how Nguyen Yen Lan conquers the admissions officers.

Nurturing the dream of studying abroad, winning a scholarship of 6 billion VND

Like Nguyen Yen Lan, Le Nguyet Ha, a former student of Nguyen Gia Thieu High School, Hanoi, started to dream of studying abroad in 9th grade. She set her goal to pass the English class of Hanoi High School for the Gifted - Amsterdam to have more opportunities for study abroad, however, that goal failed.

Although she did not go to a specialized school, Ha continued to pursue her dream. At the beginning of 10th grade, I started studying for certificates and got 1,440/1,600 SAT scores, 7.0 IELTS. I took the SAT twice in May and December 2019 but the results were not too high.

Trying to complete the subjects in class well to get a high final score, Nguyet Ha also actively participates in many extra-curricular activities. Starting from the position of a member of the clubs, Ha established her own project The 80% project (a project that connects students so that she and her friends have the opportunity to share their study plans, study abroad, etc.) bridge the gap between students of schools) and Greeny project (environmental project). Participating in many extra-curricular activities helps Ha become more confident and mature.

At the beginning of grade 12, Ha focused on writing essays to apply to schools. I make a detailed outline for the main essay and adjust it according to the requirements of each school. The female student convinced the admissions committee with her own real story.

Thanks to her efforts, Ha has been accepted by 10 universities she has applied for such as Beloit College, Depauw University, College of Wooster….

After much consideration, Le Nguyet Ha chose to major in Business Administration at Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar (CMU USA's branch campus in the top 25 NU) with a full scholarship package and a part of accommodation costs, totaling 264,000 USD (about 6 billion VND ).
