Fulbright University Vietnam is Vietnam’s first independent, non-profit, liberal arts university.
Fulbright emerged from a two-decades long initiative of the Harvard Kennedy School to create Vietnam’s first center of public policy teaching and research, the Fulbright Economics Teaching Program.
Globally integrated but deeply embedded in Vietnamese society, Fulbright is dedicated to providing a world-class education, utilizing the latest advancements in institutional design, teaching, learning, technology and other fields to create an institution that is both innovative and globally relevant.
Fulbright’s first two academic programs are a graduate program in public policy and management that launched in 2017 (the Fulbright School of Public Policy and Management) and a Co-Design Year that launched in 2018.
Former United States President Barack Obama officially announced Fulbright in May 2016. It receives core financial support from the United States Department of State and a number of private supporters.
