We have a strong belief that a better Vietnam will be achieved through education. VietSeeds provide A HOLISTIC SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM to help our selected “SEEDs” gaining access to tertiary education as a stepping stone to reach their full potential. Our talented SEEDs are among socio-economically disadvantaged Vietnamese who would otherwise unable to attend and complete their tertiary education without financial support.
Our mission is to empower our SEEDs to have rich intellectual lives, competitive and fulfilling careers, not only to become financially independent but also to be an engaging citizenship so that they can start giving back to societies.
