First Vietnamese girl receives US Berklee College of Music scholarship
Posted: Sep 30,2009

Than Trong Uyen Phuong, 23 years old, who won 7 gold medals at piano and organ contests organized by Yamaha, Casino, Kawai in Vietnam, has become the first Vietnamese student achieving a scholarship of the Piano Performance Department, Berklee College of Music in Boston, US.

She was one of five people honored at the Asian Young Talent Classical Piano Competition in 2007 in Singapore.

After two years of studying music at Golden West College, California, US, she sought a scholarship and took the entrance examination for Berklee College of Music.

Passing many examinations and interviews about her music career in the future, Uyen Phuong was reported to have been admitted into the Berklee College of Music on September 15.

Accordingly, three days after receiving the results, Uyen Phuong will know the value of her scholarship (the lowest is 30% and the highest is a full scholarship)

It is said that the entrance exam for the Piano Performance Department is strict and the cost to study piano there is very high – 70,000 USD per year, according to the college’s website.

"... From the beginning of the first century A.D., when the two Trung Sisters rose up to fight the enemy and save the nation, until now, whenever our country has faced danger, our women have contributed whatever they could toward the cause of national liberation.

Our people are grateful that our mothers from South and North alike have borne and raised our nation's generation of heroes....

Under the Socialist system, tens of thousands of women have become specialists in different fields and, as cadre, serve as directors and vice-directors of factories, leaders of farming cooperatives, presidents of People’s Committees, and general secretaries of Party Cells....

And so, the women of Vietnam from ancient times until now, from South to North, from young to old, are truly heroes ..."

(Excerpted from President Ho Chi Minh's speech on the 36th Anniversary of Vietnam Women's Union 20 October 1966)
