The Singapore Business Group HCMC (SBG) Education Fund (EdFund) was initiated by pioneering members of SBG in the early 90’s in giving back to the local community. It was officially established as an outreach programme since 2000.

EdFund has grown over the years to serve the purpose of providing financial assistance (school fee scholarship) to the needy and well-deserved students with their academic studies pursuit.

SBG has rolled out a new EdFund programme and is calling for all kind-hearted donors to support the local community.


SBG got recognized for the great charitable effort towards the Vietnamese community and were honorably awarded with the certificate of commendation from the Ministry of Education and Training in 2010.

Since its establishment, SBG has awarded a wide range of scholarships for students in Southern suburbs. Till April 2018, we have raised more than US$ 428,000 and sponsored 3,000 Vietnamese students from Primary to University level in Ho Chi Minh city, Da Nang city, provinces in Northern Central Vietnam and Mekong Delta.


SBG is now re-opening our EdFund programme and calling for all kind-hearted donors to support the local community together as a whole.

SBG EdFund Scholarship is only opened for Vietnamese students from primary to university level. All applications will be screened and categorized based on their poverty levels, grades and majors through three rounds. The finalists will be invited to an Education Fund Ceremony where SBG EdFund representatives will be giving them the scholarships.

The scholarship will cover all school fees, confirmed by the schools and universities that the students are attending. Copies of all the fees’ receipts will be recorded in SBG Secretariat Office.


EdFund programme is opened on a yearly basis. Every year we will have a cut-over period in August to finalize the total amount of money raised together with the list of successful applicants. All donations received after this time will be kept for next academic year scholarships.

The Minh Long Ceramics mug will be given free-of-charge to every generous donor as our appreciation. It will generate funds perpetually for this worthy cause of subsidizing to the needy and well-deserving Vietnamese students in pursing their academic studies.

All donations will be published on SBG website as an appreciation for your support to encourage Vietnamese students to strive harder in both studies and life.
