Fulbright University Vietnam Welcomes Class of 2024

Friday, September 11, 2020

Supported by USAID, Fulbright University Vietnam (FUV) is the country’s first independent, private and nonprofit liberal arts university. On August 29, Ambassador Daniel Kritenbrink helped launch the FUV 2020 Convocation in a ceremony held at the university’s temporary campus in Ho Chi Minh City. While this year’s target was an incoming class of 120 students, FUV decided to open up more than 60 additional spaces for students who were prevented from going overseas for their studies due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During the ceremony, incoming student Tran Viet Hoang delivered the keynote address. He described how he lost his sight at the age of five, learned Braille, and went on to become one of the top performing students in his village. Later on, he learned English and was accepted at FUV. 

So What? FUV is helping unlock tremendous potential in the country’s education sector through recruiting the country’s most remarkable young adults, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds and taking extraordinary measures to support Vietnamese students displaced by COVID-19.
