Recently, Lifestart Foundation has awarded a new round of major medical scholarships at Da Nang University of Medical Technology and Pharmacy.

In this new round, six scholarships were awarded to outstanding students who have demonstrated academic excellence and are from extremely disadvantaged backgrounds. By way of their chosen vocation they also meet the criteria of completing a degree in an area that will not only benefit themselves and their families in the future but more importantly the wider community.

Prior to receiving their Lifestart Foundation Medical Education Scholarships, many of the selected students do not have enough money to eat enough and survive in a big city like Da Nang.

In addition to all tuition costs and books, their Lifestart Foundation scholarship provides them with a food and rent allowance which enables them to have a balanced nutritious daily diet and safe accommodation.

This round of scholarships totaled USD 43,750.

Due to the complicated development of COVID-19, Karen Jayne Leonard - Founder of Lifestart Foundation did not directly attending and giving scholarships to students, but delivered her speech through live broadcast. She expressed her thanks to the University for supporting for the award ceremony to take place solemnly. Karen also congratulates the students of the school receiving the scholarships of the organization she is the founder.
