Apply For The Robert and Colette Scholarship today!
What is the Nguyen Family Foundation and why did we start it?
The Nguyen Family Foundation was founded by Tri, Julia and Chau to promote education and opportunity for students.
Our main inspiration is Loi from our center. He was just a student from a village in Vietnam and now he is going to study at Princeton for his PhD. We remember talking to him when we first met him a few years ago. He could not even dream up the possibility. Countless students share his thirst for learning but lack the financial and educational opportunity.
Why did you want to start the Robert and Colette Scholarship?
Our friends and mentors Robert and Colette believe in our mission and made a kind donation to help us grow our education company. Instead, we are honored to present this scholarship in their name.
