About

Explore Vietnam’s ancient and traditional health systems, from bustling and dynamic Ho Chi Minh City and Can Tho in the Mekong Delta to Dalat Flower Garden in the Central Highland. Traditional Vietnamese medicine, also known as southern medicine (Thuoc Nam) and traditional Chinese medicine, or northern medicine (Thuoc Bac), have evolved closely for more than a millennium. Starting at the program’s base in Ho Chi Minh City, learn about the social, economic, and cultural paradigms that frame traditional Vietnamese medicine and Vietnam’s extensive community health network. You will also learn about the use and local practices of southern medicine in rural Hoa An village in Mekong Delta. During a week-long excursion to Dalat, see how indigenous local groups such as the K’ho peoples are affected by climate change, globalization, development, and sustainability efforts.

Guidelines/Requirements:
The SIT Study Abroad scholarship application process has been fully integrated into our online program application. After ticking the scholarship box in the program application, please complete the following steps: 1) Once your scholarship application is started, you will be asked to provide SIT with the name and email address of a financial aid counselor at your home institution, or the general email address of your financial aid office. This is very important as it allows SIT to consider any financial aid that may be available from your home institution when reviewing your scholarship application. 2) Add SIT’s school code (008860) to your FAFSA form. 3) Your scholarship application is complete and ready for review when SIT has your FAFSA and the financial aid information from your home institution. Confirm receipt of all required financial aid information with the SIT Study Abroad Scholarship Office (studyabroad.scholarships@sit.edu or 802.258.3503). 4) If you do not receive an award decision notification from SIT before the billing due date, please know that your scholarship application was not complete.
