Class of 2028 Fulbright University Scholarship

The Class of 2028 Fulbright University Scholarship fund was established in 2023 as the continuation of the scholarship program which commenced 2 years ago. With the commitment to recognize outstanding talents and contributions, regardless of financial need or citizenship, Fulbright has now introduced this scholarship initiative. This program will provide 65 awards, in addition to other financial assistance, to incoming students. All of this aligns with our mission to seek and inspire a new generation of leaders and ambitious thinkers to create a better world.

Scholarship recipients are students who demonstrate outstanding academic achievements and meaningful community contributions. The awards are determined by a selection committee that evaluates applicants’ performances in the admissions, scholarship applications and interview rounds.

The Fulbright University Scholarship Awards include three types:

  • Fulbright President’s Scholarship covers 80% or 100% of Fulbright’s annual tuition fee and is renewable for up to four years of undergraduate study at Fulbright.

Nguyễn-Phương Family Scholarship

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.
