Vientiane (VNA) – Outstanding students of the National University of Laos (NUOL) on January 24 received scholarships from the Lanexang Assurance Public Insurance (LAP), a joint venture between the Vietnam Post and Telecommunication Insurance JS Corporation and the Laos Development Bank.

Addressing the awarding ceremony, Director of the LAP Do Dang Khang said the grants aim to encourage and aid excellent students.

Ten scholarships worth 4 million Lao kip (466 USD) each were presented to Vietnamese and Lao disadvantaged students with good study performance of the NUOL. In addition, musical instruments and five dictionaries were handed over to the university.

Rector of the NUOL Somesi Nhophanxay thanked Lanexang for its support for the university’s students, saying that the scholarship not only helps disadvantaged students to overcome their difficulties to continue their study, but also a source of encouragement for other students to strive for better performance in study.

On January 25, the LAP presented accident insurance to nearly 5,000 people and five tonnes of rice totalling 41,000 USD to about 1,000 households in two villages of Paksong and Watluang in Paksong district of Laos’ Champasak province. -VNA
