“I am very grateful and proud to receive this scholarship. The internship gave me the opportunity to work with extremely talented and enthusiastic industry experts. I have access to green hydrogen technology – an advanced, environmental-friendly energy conversion solution that is being researched by the US and European countries.

This experience not only helped me widen my professional capacity but also realize the significance of teamwork, adaptability, and time management. In addition, I also enhanced my specialized English every day and understanding of cultures around the world,” Ngoc Phung recalled.
