Aligned with our mission to grow Vietnamese talent into future change-makers, Fulbright and VietSeeds Foundation proudly announced the creation of the Nguyễn-Phương Family Scholarship, (“NP Family Scholarship) which awards one (01) full tuition scholarship to incoming students for every academic year, starting Fall 2021.

This endowed scholarship is funded by the family of Mr. Nguyễn Phương Lam, a distinguished philanthropist in Asia. Mr. Nguyễn Phương Lam was the first Vietnamese student to attend the Stanford Graduate School of Business and has built a successful career in finance and investment. His philanthropic activities, which center on education and poverty alleviation, span throughout organizations in Asia and the world such as Acumen, Ashoka, Endeavor, and VietSeeds Foundation, a non-profit organization committed to bringing equal access to college education for all students across Vietnam.

The spirit of the scholarship is to help form generations of Vietnamese leaders/change-makers (in all fields of society) for a more humane, kinder world – a world built on solidarity instead of competition; a world focusing on broad human development and social sustainability instead of just economic and material development; a world based on the principle that the meaning of human life is in the being, and not in the having.

In addition to the financial reward, the recipient of the NP Family Scholarship will have access to special mentorship and career development opportunities offered by the Nguyen-Phuong family.


Any student applying to Fulbright is eligible to apply.

Applicants need to demonstrate exemplary traits of future change-makers by having these following characteristics: Curiosity and Creativity, Courage and Resilience, Adaptability and Open Mind, Leadership and Co-leadership.


The NP Family scholarship will not be automatically renewed. Scholarship recipients are required to provide evidence of the changes they have made through a report submitted to the Scholarship Committee twice a year.
