For the sixth consecutive year Doosan Vina has awarded scholarships at universities across Vietnam. The 109 recipients are students at nine Vietnamese universities.
Speaking at one of the scholarship award programs, Kim Gwang Ju, Director of the Human Resource and Management Divisions said, “Since commencing operations five years ago we’ve spent more than $2 million on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), our CSR programs focus on education and health because we believe that education and health are foundational to advancement, if a person is to be competitive in today’s global economy a healthy body and a well trained mind are an absolute necessity, so that’s where we’ve been investing our CSR budget.”
The scholarships Doosan Vina provides are broad based and cover a variety of disciplines, including engineering, language and business that coincide with the company’s employee development needs.
This year’s scholarships totaled nearly 400 M VND or $20,000 and went to students at: Ho Chi Minh City University of Social Sciences and Humanities, Da Nang University of Foreign Languages, Hue University of Foreign Languages, Ho Chi Minh University of Polytechnic, Ho Chi Minh University of Technical Education, Ho Chi Minh University of Industrial, Da Nang University of Polytechnic, Quang Ngai’s Pham Van Dong University and Quang Nam University.
In addition to the student support, nearly $2,400 was given to Quang Ngai’s Pham Van Dong University and Quang Nam University to help the schools purchase some much needed equipment and machinery for classes.
