Merali University Scholarship Program06/18/2014
In October 2011, The Asia Foundation, with support from the Shirin Pandju Merali Foundation, launched a five-year project to enable 100 women to pursue undergraduate studies at three prestigious colleges and universities in Vietnam. Generous donations support academically gifted female students from poor backgrounds to continue their education at university level. This university scholarship program is unique in supporting students majoring in the natural sciences and technical fields, where women are traditionally underrepresented.
