Vietnam was selected as the first recipient of the foundation’s overseas scholarship program promoted to nurture future talents, because Vietnam’s spirit to pioneer the future and its remarkable development with abundant growth potential is in line with Honorary Chairman Se-yung Chung’s spirit of taking on challenges. Pony Chung Foundation supports the Vietnamese talents who will bridge Korea and Vietnam, and become leaders of the future.
Pony Chung Foundation Signed agreements with Vietnam National University Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam National University and Hanoi, each in 2006 and 2007, and started its Vietnam Scholarship program.
Every September, the Pony Chung Vietnam Scholarship Program selects first-stage candidates from Vietnam National University (Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi campuses) based on their ability to see the world in a broader perspective, academic achievements, and financial status. That group is then shortened to a total of 60 recipients (30 from each school) through the foundation’s final screening process in early October. Scholarship ceremonies are then held from late October to November at both schools. The selected recipients are granted 500 USD, equivalent of full tuition fees and living expenses for one year.
