Thai conglomerate SCG last week announced the latest SCG Sharing the Dream Scholarship 2019 - a continuation of its 12-year journey to set a foundation for human resources development in Vietnam.

This year’s program will expand to nine cities and provinces, presenting 290 scholarships worth over $82,000 in total and training opportunities for necessary soft skills improvements. This will help SCG facilitate students and support their passion, providing a strong springboard for Vietnam to grow sustainably in the future.

“Following our brand promise of ‘Passion for Better’, SCG has worked relentlessly with local partners to contribute to the country’s development,” said Mr. Chaowalit Treejak, Director of TPC Vina Co. Ltd. “SCG Sharing the Dream Scholarship is one of our continuous commitments to supporting human resources development in Vietnam via education.”

“In the past 12 years, the program has fulfilled the dreams of more than 4,000 students nationwide. This year, we are delighted to sustain and expand the project to more locations, spreading from the north to the south of the country and answering the various needs of localities in terms of human resources development.”

The nine cities and provinces are Ho Chi Minh City, Long An, Dong Nai, Binh Duong, Ba Ria Vung Tau, Quang Binh, Thai Binh, Nghe An, and Hai Duong, with a mix of scholarships ranging from high school to university and not limited to majors.

“Each student has a unique dream that should be cherished and encouraged,” Mr. Treejak added. “That’s why we keep adjusting the program to provide better support to students around the country to help them achieve their dreams through education. We strongly believe a variety of contributions will make Vietnam better.”

The SCG Sharing the Dream Scholarship has been the flagship corporate social responsibility program of SCG since 2007. During the past 12 years, the program has presented more than 4,000 scholarships to students nationwide. In line with SCG’s Passion for Better promise, the program has been restructured since 2018 with more activities for beneficiaries and a deeper involvement by SCG.
