STF presents scholarships to Danang students

Van Xe

The Saigon Times Foundation (STF) under the Saigon Times Group last Thursday joined forces with Danang Fund for Promoting Educational Development to award 50 scholarships worth VND2 million each to poor students with outstanding academic records in two districts of Hai Chau and Thanh Khe in the central coastal city of Danang on the occasion of the beginning of the new school year.

The scholarship recipients comprise 46 outstanding students with poor family backgrounds from Tran Van On Primary School, and four excellent students who have achieved excellent academic records from Huynh Ngoc Hue Primary School.

Scores of parents are still grappling with a host of difficulties to earn their daily bread and are not able to afford sufficient education for their children. The scholarship donation helps easing the financial burden on parents and making the schooling dream of poverty-stricken students come true, said the principal of Tran Van On Primary School.

Launched in 2002, the STF scholarship program has handed over VND13.7 billion worth of scholarships to 7,100 students nationwide on behalf of individual and institutional benefactors.
