Answers to Frequently Asked Questions
 

  1. Are your scholarships only available to Houston students?


    No. While some of our scholarships are reserved specifically for Houston students, we do have at least one scholarship that is available to students from anywhere in the US. Residency requirements are clearly stated in the description of each scholarship.

  2. What qualifies as "Vietnamese descent"?


    The general guideline that is used to determine "Vietnamese descent" for the purposes of our scholarships, is that at least on grandparent must be Vietnamese. However, we recognize that that we live in a diverse country with many different family arrangements; exceptions to this guideline will be made on a case by case basis.
