Intel Vietnam Scholars
Intel Vietnam Scholars is a program sponsored by Intel Corporation that provides transfer engineering students from select Vietnamese universities the opportunity to complete a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical or Mechanical Engineering, or Supply and Logistics Management at Portland State University.
This program not only provides each student with an excellent education and international experience, but also prepares them for a career in Intel’s semiconductor assembly and test facility in Ho Chi Minh City when they return home. Since 2009 73 students have participated in the program, joining Portland State’s graduating classes of 2011, 2012 and 2014. Of the 21 students in the Intel Vietnam Scholars class of 2014, 16 are women.
In 2012 a team comprised of Portland State's Intel Vietnam Scholars competed in the prestigious Cornell Cup USA, a national embedded design competition, and took first place.
Intel Corporation was recognized for outstanding citizenship with the Secretary of State’s 2012 Award for Corporate Excellence. Intel's commitment to making transformative educational opportunities available in Vietnam was among many reasons cited for their nomination.
