Tokyo Techies Scholarship program

The Tokyo Techies Scholarship Program was established in 2023 by CEO of Tokyo Techies, Mr Ba Duc Do.

The program aims to provide excellent students majoring in Information Technology with scholarships to study Japanese, experience more Japanese culture and would like to develop a career in Japan.

Duc Doba, the founder of Tokyo Techies ( - Tokyo Tech Lab Vietnam’s siblings company, has over 12 years of software engineering and product management experience at leading Japanese tech companies like SoftBank, LINE, and Rakuten.

In 2005, while studying Computer Science at the University of Engineering and Technology - National University of Hanoi (VNU-UET), Duc was granted a scholarship from the Japanese corporation AXXISOFT - which opened his doors to study Japanese and eventually work in Japan. Inspired by the power of giving, Duc long dreamed of creating a similar scholarship program that supports college students in their academic and professional growth back home in Vietnam.

After 16 years of living in Japan and 5 years of successfully growing Tokyo Techies, he is now launching the Tokyo Techies Scholarship Program (TTSP) to provide outstanding university students in Vietnam with a scholarship to learn Japanese, deepen their knowledge of Japan, and discover new opportunities to work with Japanese companies upon graduation.

With this start, we hope to give more and more opportunities for the youth in Vietnam to have a better environment and conditions to study and to develop their careers to meet international standards.
