On October 27th, the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee and the Ministry of Science and Technology organized the 20th Anniversary of the Golden Globe Science and Technology Awards and the Vietnamese Women’s Science and Technology Award in Ha Noi. Two students from VNUHCM- University of Science, Đỗ Thảo Anh (class of 2019, majoring in Materials Science and Technology) and Lê Phạm Nhật Quỳnh (class of 2020, majoring in Computer Science), excellently won the 2023 Vietnamese Women’s Science and Technology Award.
The Vietnamese Women’s Science and Technology Award, previously known as the “Award for Outstanding Female Students in IT,” was established in 1997. It is organized annually to recognize female students who excel in science and technology fields and contribute to the development of Viet Nam. This recognition highlights the importance of gender diversity in these industries and the need to empower women to pursue careers in these fields.
In 2023, the Center for Development of Science, Technology and Young Talent received 65 applications from 31 universities and academies in the country, across 12 disciplines for the award consideration after a launch that lasted over three months.
The Award Organizing Committee has discovered that the female students vying for this year’s accolade boast impressive academic achievements, having published articles and engaged in practical scientific research initiatives. Additionally, they have secured top honours in startup and programming competitions, as well as earned scholarships for national and international study.
