This year's program is particularly imbued with the spirit of celebrating the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Japan.

Since its launch in 2011, the AEON Scholarship has been organized by AEON Vietnam, under the authorization of the AEON 1% Club Foundation. The scholarship aims to support students with good academic records and difficult circumstances from universities in Ho Chi Minh City.

As of 2023, the AEON Scholarship has sponsored a total of 1,290 scholarships to students, with a total annual value of the scholarship in Ho Chi Minh City being 400 million VND. Throughout the application and scholarship process, students are given the opportunity to participate in activities that enrich their educational experience, such as writing essays on social topics, interviewing directly with businesses, and so on. This helps them to continue their journey of personal development and achieve success in the future.

This year's scholarship granting ceremony was held at AEON Tan Phu Celadon, and the event was honored to welcome Mr. Yoshiki Mori, Chairman of the AEON 1% Foundation, Mr. Ono Masuo, Consulate General of Japan in Ho Chi Minh City, students and representatives from Ho Chi Minh City University of Education, University of Social Sciences and Humanities – National University of Ho Chi Minh City, and University of Economics Ho Chi Minh City, as well as representatives from 8 companies under the AEON Group in Vietnam.

At the ceremony, Mr. Ono Masuo, Consulate General of Japan in Ho Chi Minh City, congratulated the 40 outstanding students and affirmed: “In the year of the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations, Japan and Vietnam have upgraded to a comprehensive strategic partnership for peace and prosperity in Asia and the world. This includes strengthening cooperation in the field of education. I hope the AEON 1% Foundation Club scholarship will help you become more interested in Japan, thereby contributing to the future exchange between Japan and Vietnam. The future generation plays a very important role in continuing to develop this good relationship even further in the next 50 years.”

Mr. Yoshiki Mori, Chairman of the AEON 1% Foundation, shared at the ceremony: “The AEON Scholarship was initiated by the AEON 1% Club Foundation to support students in pursuing their dreams and contributing positively to the development of Japan, Asian countries and the world in the future. I hope that the students who receive the scholarship today will strive to study hard and acquire knowledge to pursue their dreams, become excellent human resources contributing to peace and world development.”

After the ceremony, 40 scholarships were granted, which provide financial assistance to help the students continue to pursue their dreams & studies, create motivation on the journey of enhancing awareness and skills, and contribute to creating positive changes for society.

AEON Vietnam, as the organizer in Ho Chi Minh City, once again reaffirms its commitment to nurturing and investing in the development of the youth generation for positive changes. We hope that in the near future, the students will become a strong bridge in further strengthening the foundation of the Japan - Vietnam relationship on the path of sustainable development towards the future, reaching the region and the world.
