Open doors to more students
across Vietnam.
Fulbright Forward »

University innovation
for an impatient future.


We’re building Fulbright University Vietnam, an entirely new, non-profit university in Ho Chi Minh City.  For us, the American tradition of liberal education is an inspiration, but it’s a point of departure, not the destination.


We’re starting from scratch, with the goal of creating an institution that can transform the lives of young people, address the pressing needs of Vietnamese society, and ultimately point the way toward a new approach to high quality education in developing countries.


We’re laser-focused on creating a transformative educational experience that is accessible to gifted students from around Vietnam, irrespective of their socioeconomic circumstances.


We recognize the magnitude of the opportunity and the challenge. While it would be easier to create “yet another university”, this is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to imagine a new approach to higher education from the ground up.

Our Priorities


Investing in the next generation of leaders, innovators, and difference-makers.


Creating world-class educational experiences, designed for Vietnam.


Building a sustainable, 21st century campus, optimized for academic excellence.

A gift to Fulbright University Vietnam is an investment in Vietnam’s future.
