“We’re very excited that…the new Fulbright University Vietnam will open in Ho Chi Minh City — this nation’s first independent, non-profit university — where there will be full academic freedom and scholarships for those in need.
Students, scholars, researchers will focus on public policy and management and business; on engineering and computer science; and liberal arts — everything from the poetry of Nguyen Du, to the philosophy of Phan Chu Trinh, to the mathematics of Ngo Bao Chau…”
President Barack Obama, Hanoi, May 24, 2016

Our mission is to build, steward, and govern Fulbright University Vietnam, Vietnam’s first private, nonprofit university. Incorporate in 2012 as the Trust for University Innovation in Vietnam, in 2020 we rebranded as Fulbright University Vietnam USA to highlight our singular focus on building Fulbright into a world-class apex university.
