The study promotion society in Ho Chi Minh City presented 744 scholarships to needy students in the city on October 25.

The scholarships, worth nearly 2 billion VND (90,000 USD), are to help children from disadvantaged backgrounds overcome difficulties to pursue education.

Vice Chairman of the Vietnam study promotion society Luong Ngoc Toan said the scholarships enable poor students to pursue their academic careers and encourage them to make active contributions to the society.

The programme has also contributed to the building of a learning society, he added.

Over the past 15 years, the municipal study encouragement society granted scholarships worth over 17.3 billion VND (778,500 USD) to 2,175 students across the city.-VNA
