Sacombank allocated nearly VND 11 billion for the "Nurturing dreams" scholarship 2023


To mark the commencement of the 2023-2024 school year, Sacombank has spent nearly VND 11 billion to implement the "Nurturing Dreams" scholarship program. This initiative represents a 20-year journey, with a cumulative budget of nearly VND 61 billion, aimed at motivating students facing financial challenges across the nation to excel in their studies and achieve their aspirations. The 2023 scholarship program encompasses nearly 4,000 recipients. Each student is awarded a scholarship valued at VND 1.5 million, along with the opportunity to win a prize of up to VND 5 million in a writing contest. College students will receive scholarships worth VND 75 million each, in addition to potential job opportunities at Sacombank.

Eligible candidates for the 2023 scholarship include middle and high school students from all provinces and cities where Sacombank operates branches. Also eligible are second-year students majoring in Economics, Law, and Information Technology at universities in Hanoi, HCMC, and provinces in the Southwest region. The primary criterion for consideration is an average academic score of 7.0/10 or 2.5/4 or higher for the 2022-2023 academic year.

During July and August of 2023, Sacombank collaborated with educational institutions to identify nearly 3,800 deserving scholarship recipients, including 200 students in Hanoi and 169 students in Ho Chi Minh City. Notably, this year marked the first time that Sacombank introduced a writing contest with the theme "Spread Your Wings and Fly High" to further boost students' spirits. On 5/9/2023, Sacombank simultaneously presented nearly 3,800 scholarships, each valued at VND 1.5 million, along with backpacks. Additionally, 290 prizes, ranging from VND 500,000 to VND 5 million, were awarded to students who excelled in the writing contest.

College students eligible for full scholarships are required to submit applications according to the instructions available on the website, starting from October 2023. Selected candidates will progress to the Conquest Round, scheduled for November 2023, where they will undergo direct interviews. Sacombank will ultimately select 40 students who will receive full scholarships, each valued at VND 75 million, along with backpacks. These scholarships will be awarded for three consecutive years, providing an annual grant of VND 25 million until graduation.

To date, the bank has awarded over 42,200 scholarships, totaling nearly VND 61 billion. Moreover, Sacombank consistently facilitates students' participation in training activities, orientation programs, skills development courses, internships, and job fairs, thereby making tangible contributions to education and offering career development opportunities to the younger generation.
