The VAK Study Promotion Fund was initiated by the Overseas Vietnamese Association in Kitakyushu with the companionship of Tsubaki Company (a company of Vietnamese people in Japan).

This is the first year this fund has awarded prizes to Vietnamese people who have good results in studying Japanese and are examples in the Vietnamese community in the region.

To receive the award, candidates must have passed the N1 level of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT), held twice a year, and write an essay sharing their Japanese learning experiences. Each prize is worth 30,000 JPY (over 219 USD) and a Certificate of Merit from the Overseas Vietnamese Association in Kitakyushu city.

Overcoming many applicants, this year, the winners of the VAK Study Promotion Fund include international students Nguyen Thi Hien, Phan Mao Tan, Do Thu Thao and Le Quang Tu. These are international students at a Japanese language school or freshmen at a university or college in Japan.

Speaking at the ceremony, Consul General of Vietnam in Fukuoka Vu Binh congratulated the growth of the Overseas Vietnamese Association in Kitakyushu.

Newly established in the end of 2021, the association has organized meaningful activities for the community in the region, especially the establishment of the VAK Study Promotion Fund. This is an action that shows the right vision and direction for the Vietnamese community, not only in Kitakyushu but also in many other areas.

Mr. Vu Binh affirmed that Japanese language is considered as a tool, a bridge for Vietnamese people to live and study well in Japan, understand the culture of indigenous people, thereby contributing to building more relationships between the two countries.

The Vietnamese Consul General in Fukuoka expressed his wish that the fund would continue to develop and spread the significance of its activities in the Vietnamese community in Kitakyushu.

Accordingly, the Overseas Vietnamese Association in Kitakyushu will continue to maintain the VAK Study Promotion Fund with the motto for the community, wishing to create a movement to learn Japanese in the community in Japan./.
