The English Access Microscholarship Program is a high-profile global scholarship program sponsored by the U.S. Department of State. This program provides a foundation of English language skills to non-elite, 13-17-year-old students through after school English language classes, intensive sessions, and enhancement activities.
The program also gives participants the opportunity to gain an appreciation for U.S. culture and values and is intended to increase students’ ability to participate successfully in the socio-economic development of their countries, and improve their chances of participating in U.S. educational and exchange programs.

The program will be implemented at a location which is accessible on a regular basis to the selected participants with minimal support from the program budget.
The location can be in a city/province where the provider has a branch with wellequipped facilities and qualified English language teachers.
Selected participants must be high performing, non-elite 13-to-17-year-old Vietnamese students. The provider is encouraged to develop creative ideas to target specific groups of students that have good academic records and are economically and/or socially disadvantaged.
The Access provider is encouraged to develop a selection process for the program in which the U.S. Embassy Public Affairs Section plays a key role and makes the final decision of selecting program participants.
