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.
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. Only students coming from a Vietnamese school and entering grade 10 may apply.
