Visionary Scholarship

Are you a Visionary?

Do you have what it takes to be the next visionary leader?

The Visionary Scholarship Committee is proud to announce the official Visionary Campaign start for the 14th Annual UNAVSA Leadership Conference. Huy Duong, our gracious sponsor, a Northern California native and former regional president, reached out to UNAVSA May of 2011 with hopes to expand the scholarship program. Since then, our organization is able to provide six college students the opportunity to travel to UNAVSA’s Annual Leadership Conference at minimal or no cost.

We at UNAVSA understand that college students are burdened with financial pressures and want to lend a helping hand to those passionate and in need. This scholarship offers a first-hand experience for attendees to dive into leadership, personal & professional development, while being able to network with hundreds of other community leaders across the North American Continent.

This year, the scholarship will be awarded to a total of six winners – three winners in the Eastern region and three in the Western region. This method ensures scholarship winners are not all concentrated from one area. Recipients will be selected by the Visionary Scholarship Committee in a two-part process. For more details on the application, please see “About The Visionary Scholarship” below.

Year after year, the size of the Visionary Scholarship circle continues to grow. UNAVSA hopes to provide resources and opportunities for recipients and members to create a significant impact in their lives as leaders and their respective communities. We want to instill value in the ideals of culture, family, and philanthropy – all components that make communities strong and successful!
