Sunflower Mission is very proud to introduce the Le So Memorial Scholarship of Excellence! This scholarship will be awarded annually to 5-10 Vietnam-based incoming or current university freshmen students. Eligible students must major in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Business, Education, or Medical fields. The reward is a $2000 USD/year (paid per $1000/semester) for up to 4 years to selected recipients who consistently demonstrate financial need and maintain academic excellence, as required by the application process.
There are so many factors that go into making a student successful — inside and outside of the classroom. We are excited to be expanding our programs to include health and hygiene! The Hygiene & Health Education Initiative (HHEI) was launched in the fall of 2016. This new program is aimed at teaching students the basics of hand-washing, cleanliness, and health.
Update: April 23rd will be our work camp orientation. At this meeting all work camp participants will have the chance to get to know each other; learn about traveling to Vietnam; and what to expect at work camp. We are very excited to meet our volunteers!
This will be our largest work camp — with more than 40 individuals participating from America and Canada and almost 20 from Vietnam. The work camp will include many activities, including: medical service, LEGO Robotic Workshops, a 3D printing demo, arts & crafts, and English lessons! Additionally, this year’s commitment by doctors in the U.S. and Vietnam will enable us to provide clinical services to our students at the school sites.
At this time we are no longer accepting applications. If you would like to be put on the wait-list contact us!
Sunflower Mission is happy to report that we have broken ground on a new school in the Quang Nam Province. As construction begins on this facility we are excited about some of the new design methods that will be utilized in both the school’s building systems and its interior finishes. Tien Ngoc will be the school site for the 2017 work camp.
