Zhenru Town Sub-district launched a public scholarship program last Friday that would help several hundred students to finish school within Putuo District.
The program was supported by the sub-district fund, the sub-district commercial chamber, Zhenru Temple and local artists.
Several dozens of artworks were donated and used for charity auction at the venue. The proceeds were collected by the scholarship program.
The sub-district committee also tries to combine the scholarship with other subsidies to expand sources for financial aid to students in need.
