The 4th Scholarship Awarding Ceremony “Seeding Wisdom”

 
With the purpose of encouraging the spirit of overcoming hardship, creating the bridge between the Anathapindika and the students, the “Seeding Wisdom” fund was established in 2013. For three times awarding the scholarships, “Seeding Wisdom” has funded more than 1000 students from financial difficulty and from high academic achievements. Continuing the tradition, in this ceremony, the fund presented more than 250 scholarships in the amount of over 600 millions.

Attending and witnessing  and the ceremony, Venerable Thich Chan Tinh, abbot of Hoang Phap pagoda and founder of the scholarship fund, had a few words of encouragement for the students.

The Venerable congratulated and praised the students presenting at the ceremony as they were the most outstanding ones, who have overcome hardship and challenges to obtain high academic achievements, proving that they have the will and courage necessary to better themselves in life.

They are still happier and luckier than plenty of others in this society as they are healthy, live in a happy family, and have the opportunity to get an education to make ther dreams come true. There are still people who are disabled or blind yet still can overcome their difficulties to become successful. They are the role models whose will and determination should be looked up to. 

Furthermore, being students, they are advised not to be bothered by romance or pastimes such as online games or Facebook. Instead they should focus on their aims and ideals as our futures lie in their own hands. Venerable hoped that they would become successful and responsible to themselves, to their families and to society.

After the tribute of representing students, the ceremony ended in the joy of everyone. Apart from the scholarships, each student also received a present from the board of organizers.
