To date, the U.S. Government is proud to have supported more than 7,000 Vietnamese alumni of our exchange programs. Our alumni are active and engaged in many important fields, including public policy, technology, climate change, health, and the digital economy.
We are happy to count among our alumni several prominent Vietnamese individuals. Our alumni also include hundreds of teachers and young leaders who are making a difference in their local communities.
Through small grants programs and seed funding, networking activities, and regional coordination, we support the work of our alumni as they lay a foundation for U.S.-Vietnam relations for the next generation.
