Cannon Vietnam Co. Ltd, a Japanese camera company, has launched a project providing scholarships for poor high school and university students who have excellent learning abilities.

Under the project, the company, in collaboration with the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee, will present 240 scholarships worth nearly 5 billion VND (235,000 USD) in total in the 2014-2020 period.

From now, they will look for students deserving of the award across the country and a ceremony to grant scholarships will be organised in September annually.

Since 2009, Cannon Vietnam has also funded a project that has helped provide books, bookshelves, tables, chairs and electrical equipment for shools nationwide.-VNA
