On behalf of the Lotte Foundation, Lotte Legend Saigon Hotel has awarded the 2nd LOTTE Scholarship in 2018 to excellent students from nine universities in Ho Chi Minh City.

The second Lotte Scholarship Award Ceremony in 2018 welcomed the participation of Mr. Lim Jae Hoon, Korean Consul General in Ho Chi Minh City, Mr. Huh Sung Kwan, Chairman of the Lotte Foundation, representatives of the Lotte Group, and leaders of these universities.

“Lotte has been expanding its investments in Vietnam in many types of business over the years.” said Mr. Kwan. “Thanks to the active cooperation of Vietnam, in addition to the business investment, Lotte Group also wants to contribute and fulfill its social responsibility and the scholarship is one of our efforts.”

A total of 54 scholarships, each worth $350, were awarded to students who have made excellent achievements or come from poor families and made great efforts at major universities in Ho Chi Minh City, including the University of Social Sciences and Humanities, the University of Economics, the University of Finance and Marketing, the University of Foreign Languages and Information Technology, the University of Food Industry, the University of Agriculture and Forestry, Hoa Sen University, Ton Duc Thang University, and the University of Industry.

Vietnam is a vibrant country where young people are more active and have higher quality in their profession, according to Mr. Kwan. “I wish that the students receiving Lotte scholarships today in particular and all young Vietnamese in general will make great efforts in their studies and strive for the country,” he said. “Their success will be a contribution to the development of Vietnam in the future. On behalf of the Lotte Scholarship Fund, we always create opportunities for you.”
 
The Lotte Foundation was founded in 1983 by Lotte Foundation Chairman Mr. Shin Kyuk Ho, to create motivation for students to study and develop. Since its arrival in 1996, Lotte has not only contributed to the economic and social development of Vietnam but also to the community, especially in the field of education, such as building schools and libraries in northern Thai Nguyen province in 2014, donating books to schools, and awarding scholarships to students. Students also have the opportunity to practice and work in Lotte Group subsidiaries such as Lotte Mart, Lotte Hotel & Resort, Lotteria, and Lotte Cinema.

In the field of education, since 2008 the Lotte Foundation has awarded scholarships twice a year to hundreds of excellent students in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, central Da Nang city, and south-central Phu Yen province. Nearly 3,000 students from six countries - Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, China, Myanmar and Pakistan - have been awarded scholarship with a total value of over $1.5 million.
