Toshiba Corp. said Monday it will start providing scholarships worth a total of 3.2 million yen a year to graduate students from two Vietnamese national universities in a bid to cultivate human resources for its growing economy.

The major electronics maker said it will provide 1.6 million yen a year each to Vietnam National University of Hanoi and Vietnam National University of Ho Chi Minh City starting in September.

The recipients will be mainly people studying science and engineering, but students with majors in other fields will also be eligible to receive scholarships. Each will receive about 100,000 yen for tuition and living expenses.
