Started in 2001, the Dreams Scholarship was to help young people pursue higher education in a field that fuels their passion. It is awarded to Vietnamese-American students who exhibit great leadership, service, and appreciation for the Vietnamese culture.

 

Through their partnership with the Vietnamese-American Community of Massachusetts (VACMA), NEIVSA has awarded scholarships to over forty aspiring Asian-American students since 2001. This year hopes to provide financial assistance to both high school seniors and college students.
