Two students of Vietnamese origin have got prestigious scholarships against stiff competition to pursue studies at American and British universities.

Viet Tong Lien Chi, 21, a senior chemistry student at the University of California Davis, won the Phi Kappa Phi Fellowship 2006 worth US$72,000.

She had to take an exam for the scholarship, along with over 30,000 students across the US.

Lien Chi plans to register for a postgraduate research program at UC San Francisco University in June.

She had won 12 scholarships while in school.

Ho Thi Xuan Trang has won the coveted Rhodes scholarship to research at Oxford University in the UK.

Trang is now a senior student of politics at Weslayan  University in Nebraska state, the US.

She has earlier won the Truman scholarship worth $30,000 for her social achievements.

Last February Trang was presented an All-Star Academic First Team Cup by the USA Today newspaper for being among the Top 20 Students in the US and a cash prize of $2,500.

"... From the beginning of the first century A.D., when the two Trung Sisters rose up to fight the enemy and save the nation, until now, whenever our country has faced danger, our women have contributed whatever they could toward the cause of national liberation.

Our people are grateful that our mothers from South and North alike have borne and raised our nation's generation of heroes....

Under the Socialist system, tens of thousands of women have become specialists in different fields and, as cadre, serve as directors and vice-directors of factories, leaders of farming cooperatives, presidents of People’s Committees, and general secretaries of Party Cells....

And so, the women of Vietnam from ancient times until now, from South to North, from young to old, are truly heroes ..."

(Excerpted from President Ho Chi Minh's speech on the 36th Anniversary of Vietnam Women's Union 20 October 1966)
