The students who are majoring in Korean studies, economics, finance and accounting from four universities in HCMC - University of Social Sciences and Humanities, University of Law, University of Economics and University of Foreign Languages – Information Technology (Huflit) were awarded scholarships worth US$460 to US$480 each.
Nguyen Duy Nu Hong Han, a studious poor student of the Korean studies faculty at Huflit who won the scholarship for a second time, said she would use the scholarship to get a second bachelor degree at the University of Law to prepare as a law consultant in a Korean company.
“A Korean proverb tells that a small help is more meaningful than a big promise. We hope that our small act could help these students with their studies and to become talents of the country,” said Hong Pyong Gyu, general director of LotteMart under the Lotte Group at the ceremony.
The Lotte Foundation which was established in 1983 has carried out its scholarship program in Vietnam since 2008. The scholarships are granted twice a year to students in HCMC and Hanoi.
