Recipients will get seven-year scholarships worth VND 220 million (US$9,700) each for three years of high school and four years of university.

The money will cover tuition fees, books, food, housing, uniforms, mentoring and training in soft skills.

At least 33 girls will be selected based on their academic records and passion for social development.

Annually they will be invited to attend courses in soft skills and network with prominent women leaders from the Government and business sector.

The scholarships from VinaCapital Foundation strive not only for a better future for ethnic minority girls but also practical support for them along the way, Truong My Hoa, former deputy president of the country and president of the Vu A Dinh Scholarship Fund, said.

The accomplishments of these girls in overcoming obstacles would change their lives and enable them to have a positive impact on their ethnic communities, she told a press meeting held on Monday (June 12) to kick off phase two of the project.

In the first phase between 2011 and 2017, 50 school girls from 24 ethnic minority groups received financial support worth a total of $317,610

Forty six went on to attend colleges and universities, with 35 already graduating and the rest graduating next year.
