The ceremony, with 60 scholarships worth VND160 million (US$8,880) being awarded, was co-hosted by Pham Ngoc Thach Medical University.
The honored people were mostly students from HCMC University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Pham Ngoc Thach Medical University and the Faculty of Midwifery in Tu Du Hospital.
This year, with an aim to encourage recently graduated doctors to work at remote areas, the organizers decided to provide an alternative scholarship fund for those people. The scholarship is expected to provide financial support for doctors during their work in remote areas.

The new scholarships will be given on the graduation days of the two universities.
The Nguyen Van Huong Scholarship Fund was founded by SGGP in 1998.
Within 11 years, the fund has offered 700 scholarships, worth over VND1.5 billion ($83,330), to students and doctors who volunteer to work in remote areas. This support is very helpful to medical officials to continue their study and research in their fields.
