Fulbright University Vietnam and Christina Noble Children’s Foundation (CNCF for short) signed a memorandum of understanding in 2022 to establish the Christina Noble – Fulbright Scholarship. Established through the generosity and commitment of Christina Noble Children’s Foundation, the scholarship is created specifically for students who come from significantly disadvantaged financial backgrounds.

The scholarship awards 120,000,000 VND (One hundred twenty million Vietnam dong)/ student. Every scholarship awardee will receive 30,000,000 VND each academic year in four years at Fulbright to cover the stipend.

 “Education is the movement from darkness into light. Education gives children a real chance in the world, a sense of worth, hope and an opportunity for real change. Ultimately, education gives children the tools to define their own futures – and for many is the key to breaking generational cycles of struggle and in doing so – building strong and sustainable communities.” – Ms. Helenita Noble remarked. She shared that CNCF is extremely proud to support throughout their education with Fulbright University Vietnam.

In addition to Fulbright’s Financial Aid package, this scholarship will help students in their daily expenses such as food and meals. Ms. Dam Bich Thuy, Fulbright University Vietnam’s President added: “At Fulbright, we deeply believe in the principle of equal access to opportunities for all Vietnamese students no matter which family they were born into. […] Financial difficulty should not be the reason to pull the students back from a good university education.”

This scholarship bears even more meaning as it was initiated by two of the former students at Fulbright School of Public Policy and Management: Mr. Nguyen Thanh Nha (MPP1, currently serving as the Director of Programme Development and Strategic Partnerships at CNCF) and Mr. Le The Son (MPP2, currently serving as Financial Aid Manager at Fulbright).
