SCHOLARSHIP

Goal

Our goal is to provide impoverished students in rural Viet Nam the financial means to complete their education.

Need

In Viet Nam, families have to pay school tuition to send their children to school. Many of our families farm or fish for a living and do not have stable incomes. As a result, they can’t reliably afford the cost.

Description

This program provides stipends to motivated and financially needy students in Viet Nam. Students who qualify for this scholarship receive ongoing support for their entire education.
