This program funds scholarships for nursing students in resource-limited countries.
Hue University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Faculty of Nursing is the only nursing school in central Vietnam, which is marked by rugged terrain and poor economy. Young women and men from rural communes around Hue wish to pursue the nursing profession to improve their lives as well as the lives of their families and communities. However, they lack the means to pay for tuition or the associated costs for schooling, such as housing, transportation, or books. These financial hardships are especially marked for students of ethnic minority groups who typically live in the most remote communes.
