With the desire to work in the water treatment design department of an environmental company, and the love with 2 subjects: chemistry and biology, I made a decision to enroll to the Environmental Engineering Technology from high school. When studying at Van Lang, I felt I had chosen the right major for my study. Although my family is in difficult condition, my parents have to toil all day to have enough money for us to pursue college dreams, I have no feeling of worthlessness. I want to express my sincere thanks to Lam Minh Triet scholarship and Ho Chi Minh City Water and Environment Association. I am very happy to receive this scholarship. I hope the scholarships will continue to be given to many disadvantaged students who have tried a lot in their learning "- Student Duong Kim Hien.

First of all, I would like to thank the School and Lam Minh Triet Scholarship granted by Ho Chi Minh City Water and Environmental Association for giving me this scholarship. I feel very lucky because the scholarships support me a lot. Scholarship will be a great and meaningful incentive for students like me. My parents are retired workers, so my tuition fees are largely based on my parents' pensions. The scholarship has helped me to cover the tuition fee, and also motivated me to study and practice. I always remind myself that I must strive to learn better to reserve the effort my family has made, as well as striving to achieve higher results and achievements. "- Huynh Pham Thanh Thinh.

When you have dreams, and dare to follow them, all the best will come to you. Circumstances or family conditions are a challenge, but you will succeed if you can overcome the obstacles. On that journey, the scholarships from the organizations and sponsors will be the meaningful spiritual and material support and motivation for students so that they can achieve more good result in their future.
