The Korea Exchange Bank (KEB) on November 13 presented 100 scholarships worth over 422 million VND (almost 20,000 USD) to disadvantaged students in Hanoi, who reached outstanding academic achievements.

The scholarship recipients come from five universities, namely the National Economics University, the Vietnam National University, the National Academy of Music, the Banking Academy and the Hanoi Foreign Trade University.

This is the eighth consecutive year the KEB has implemented the programme.
