HCMC – The Viet Talent Development Fund (VTDF), a non-profit organization established by three Vietnamese entrepreneurs, has presented scholarships to two promising young athletes, Pham Ngoc Cham and Pham Thanh Long.

Cham, a dedicated taekwondo athlete, has a remarkable track record that includes winning a bronze medal at the 2018 Asian Games, holding the title of Southeast Asian champion, and earning multiple national championships.

Meanwhile, Long, a talented football player, was a member of the Nutifood-JMG Academy, which clinched victory in the U21 and U19 national championships.

Both athletes hail from modest backgrounds and have faced financial hurdles on their journey. The VTDF scholarships, valued at VND50 million each, will cover their tuition and fees for four years of university education.

Expressing their gratitude for the scholarships, Cham stated, “I am overjoyed to receive this opportunity. It will enable me to concentrate on my studies and training without financial worries.

“This scholarship will not only assist me in pursuing my education but also allow me to save for my father’s medical expenses.”

Founded in 2023, VTDF is on a mission to champion talented young individuals in Vietnam. The fund has consistently awarded scholarships to aspiring athletes, artists, and scholars across various domains.
