BẾN TRE — More than 500 students, who are poor, orphans and living with disabilities, received scholarships yesterday in the southern province of Bến Tre.
The scholarships were from the Nhân Thiện Scholarship Fund, an organisation under the provincial sponsor association for poor patients, people with disabilities and orphans.
Each scholarship is worth VNĐ2-10 million (US$85-430) depending on their level of education.
This year is the eighth year the fund has given scholarships to local students. The fund aimed at helping poor students continue their schooling. After graduating and getting jobs, they will contribute to maintain the fund.
The fund has given more than 29,400 scholarships to students over the past eight years. — VNS
