The Noam Chomsky Award is granted by the Society of Transnational Academic Researchers (STAR Scholars Network) (USA) for exceptional contributions to cross-border research, demonstrating academic collaboration among scholars around the world.

In 2021, STAR Scholars Network presented the North Star Medal for Lifetime Achievement, the Shining Star Achievement in Research Award and four Rising Star Emerging Scholar Certificates.

Dr. Tran Le Huu Nghia is a research fellow at the School of Business and Economics of the Australian National University (ANU). He was honored with the Noam Chomsky Award for Rising Star Emerging Scholar in 2021.

Nghia received the prestigious Erasmus Mundus scholarship from the European Commission and the Australian Government's Endeavor Award. He earned a PhD degree in Higher Education Studies at the University of Melbourne, Australia in 2016.

Nghia is co-author about 30 scientific publications on employment opportunities after university graduation, integrated learning on the job, teacher training, curriculum development and assessment, international education and English language teaching. He collaborated with scholars in many countries.

His projects are funded by the Vietnam National Foundation for Research and Development of Science and Technology, the International Research Fund of Ton Duc Thang University and the Economic and Business Research Fund of the Australian National University. He also received the 2021 Editor of the Year Award for his contribution to the International Student Journal.

In 2020, two Vietnamese scholars - Prof. Dr. Tran Thi Ly and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Tran Xuan Bach – won this award.

Professor Noam Chomsky, 92, is one of the greatest scholars of this era. He is considered the father of modern linguistics and one of the most cited authors alive. He is the author of more than 100 books on linguistics, politics, war and mass media. With Chomsky's tremendous academic and social contributions, Mousumi Mukherjee (Chief Representative of STAR Network in India) asked for permission to use his name to create the A. Noam Chomsky Global Connections Award in October.

The award aims to honor the power of human connections and honor individuals who have a profound effect on promoting social and global mobility.
