Lawrence Ting Scholarship

Lawrence Ting Scholarship

Mr. Lawrence Ting, along with Mr.Ferdinand Tsien, Vice Chairman of the Phu My Hung Board of Directors, developed the idea of having a quality American school in Vietnam. As true educational visionaries, they had a strong vision for Saigon South International School as an international school with an American curriculum.

The Phu My Hung corporation has made a significant effort to develop a quality area in Nam Saigon, while also adding to the infrastructure of Ho Chi Minh City. Its desire to improve and assist does not stop there. Saigon South International School is one more extension of their desire to create quality and to assist in many ways. Now it is time for Saigon South International School to offer more to our host country. SSIS would like to do this in the name of one of our benefactors, Mr. Lawrence Ting

In an effort to honor Mr. Ting and his desire to develop global leaders of character, starting in the 2005-2006 school year SSIS choose to honor a host country national student (Vietnamese), who has demonstrated a strong commitment to academic excellence, proficiency in English, embodies our Core Values , demonstrates an interest in global and international affairs along with a willingness to serve others by bettering his/her country. SSIS will do this by offering to this student a 3 year renewable scholarship in Mr. Ting’s name. Students entering into Grade 10, and who have only attended local Vietnamese schools are eligible to apply for the scholarship. Students who have attended an international school at any time during their studies are not eligible to apply.
