THE Bank for Investment and Development of Viet Nam (BIDV) offered scholarships to outstanding students from Yangon University of Economics (YUE) for the 2015-2016 academic year.
BIDV provided US$100 each to 100 students at the scholarship award ceremony on Sunday.
Many Myanmar students enrol in education development programmes for
university students to upgrade their education standards by pursuing masters’ degrees abroad.
“Myanmar has conducted education development programmes in connection with 29 international universities,” said Dr Khin Naing Oo, the rector of the YUE.
Several foreign banks that have been allowed to open branches in Myanmar have offered scholarship awards to Myanmar students.
Present at the ceremony were Vietnamese Ambassador Mr Pham Thonh Dung, chief representative of BIDV Mr Ngo Duy Viet and officials from the Central Bank of Myanmar, as well as the rector and the pro-rector from the university.
