NDO/VNA – A meeting was held in Hanoi on February 27 to review Vu A Dinh Scholarship Fund’s activities in 2017 and embark on its working programme for this year.

The fund, established in 1999 by the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee, is designated to support ethnic minority students who are from poor families and achieve outstanding academic performances.

At the meeting, former President Truong My Hoa, Chairwoman of the Vu Anh Dinh Scholarship Fund, said the fund attained the set targets and actively supported disadvantaged students and people in disaster-hit areas last year.

She also thanked the Thieu nien Tien phong, a newspaper for teenagers, for assisting the fund and wanted more coordination in the time ahead.

In 2017, the fund presented 5,120 scholarships to ethnic minority students. Its “Vi Hoang Sa-Truong Sa” (For Hoang Sa-Truong Sa) club granted 2,130 scholarships to students in coastal and insular areas and those who are children of soldiers on duty at sea.

Most of the students aided by the Vu A Dinh fund have obtained good academic results, the fund reported, adding that it also organised a number of charitable activities in mountainous, rural and disaster-hit areas in 2017.
