The U.S. Mission to Vietnam is pleased to announce the 2015 Fulbright YSEALI Summer School. This program will host 160 YSEALI members from all over Vietnam for a two-week program (from August 3-14, 2015, 80 members per week) at the Fulbright Economics Teaching Program (FETP) campus in Ho Chi Minh City, where they will deepen their knowledge about issues relating to the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) and share their experience and perspectives to help Vietnam reach its fullest potential. More specifically, the program will provide a comprehensive picture about the AEC and the challenges and opportunities for Vietnam, particularly for Vietnamese youth. An integral part of the program will focus on Vietnam’s socioeconomic foundations, its strengths and weaknesses, and global context and trends. The participants will have opportunities to enhance their fundamental soft skills such as creative thinking, communication, negotiation, teamwork and adaptation through a variety of soft skill trainings, inspirational speeches, games, and competitions.
