AEON SCHOLARSHIP AWARD CEREMONY IN VIETNAM

(Ho Chi Minh City, December 2nd, 2014), Aeon Vietnam Co., Ltd. held the “AEON Scholarship Award Ceremony” at two universities in Ho Chi Minh City: University of Social Sciences and Humanities and Ho Chi Minh City University of Education with the value of nearly VND400 million.

Started since 2011, this is the 4th year that the Aeon Scholarship Award Ceremony funded by AEON 1% Club is held for the universities in Ho Chi Minh City. The subjects receiving the scholarships are students of third or forth year from different departments of two universities of University of Social Sciences and Humanities and Ho Chi Minh City University of Education who have difficult economic conditions but good achievements in study. This year, the scholarship fund will offer 60 scholarships (for 30 students per university) with the value of USD290/student/year.

Aiming at encouraging the students with difficult conditions to try and gain better achievements in their study, AEON has built a private fund for the university students through granting scholarships. Since 2006, Aeon has granted the scholarships to 239 Asian students studying at 14 universities throughout Japan. Up to 2008, Aeon starts to grant the scholarships to the students at other Asian countries. In particular, Aeon has granted 2,109 scholarships to students of different countries including 1,989 university students from China, 24 university students from Thailand, 6 university students from Indonesia, 150 students from 4 universities in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, Vietnam.

Up to now, in Vietnam, this meaningful scholarship program has been existed for 4 years thanks to the great contributions and efforts not only from Aeon, partners, staffs but also the supports and assistances from the education departments of Vietnam. In the past 4 years, hundreds of scholarships have been granted, it also means that such number of the dreams from the students have been given strength to come true. Aeon hopes that this scholarship program shall become the motive power for the students with unlucky situations but studious spirit to continue their study and be happy in their way to the university everyday and keep their dream for success. This scholarship is small, but surely, it will be the physical and spiritual encouragement for the students. In the coming years, Aeon shall try to develop further the program to help more and more Vietnamese students with difficult situations.

“Aeon Scholarship Award Ceremony” is an evidence for the principle followed by Aeon that Aeon will not only bring the high value of life to the Vietnamese consumers but also contribute to share and increase the value of life for many other people of difficult situations in the society. In addition to the scholarship program, annually, Aeon also has other meaningful social programs such as constructing the schools, student exchange, tree planting, forestation in many places throughout Vietnam etc.

AEON will not only focus its investments into the business activities but also pay much concern on the quality and living environment; always aim at the objective of improving the living conditions in the places with the presence of AEON; together with the local people to aim at the long-term and sustainable development.
