Student Profile


Huyen Trang Nguyen

Huyen Trang Nguyen

Sophomore, Ha Noi, Vietnam
Major: Double major in Accounting and Finance in the College of Business and Economics

Huyen Trang Nguyen, originally from Vietnam, only knew of Radford University through online materials and student reviews. What she did know is that it was a school with the right business program she was looking for, and one that was willing to give her an opportunity for an American education she could afford.

Upon acceptance to Radford University, Trang received a Dean’s Scholarship and an Academic Excellence Scholarship. She also received the Dr. Fernande Aimee Juliette Gard Scholarship, which is available to foreign students.

While the scholarships have given Nguyen the opportunity to earn her degree, they mean much more than that.

“The scholarships are a source of motivation and a reminder that I always have to try my best,” Nguyen said. “I feel that my efforts are acknowledged, and that ability will help me to contribute to Radford.”
