Vietnamese Seed Fund presents 20 scholarships to bright students

The Vietnamese Seed Fund, an academic sponsorship fund co-organized by Nhan Dan Newspaper, on September 24 gave away 20 scholarships to students who come first in the university entrance examination in Hanoi.

The fund presented 20 scholarships worth VND20 million (US$960) each to excellent students who come from disadvantaged families. Of them, Bui Chi Huong, from Co Loa Commune in Dong Anh District in Hanoi and studying in Post and Communication Institute of Technology, is living with his 80-year-old grandmother as his parents died of cancer a few years ago.

Nguyen Huu Tien, who passed the entrance examination for the Medicine University with qualifying score of 29.5, comes from a low income family as his parents work as laborers.

Another good example is Tran Thanh Hoang from Van Phuoc Commune in Van Ninh District in the central province of Khanh Hoa, who had to borrow money for his studies, after he came first in the entrance examination for Nha Trang University.
