Established in 2001, the organization’s Vallet Scholarship Fund has been sponsored by Professor Odon Vallet from France’s Sorbonne University. It has been the largest non-governmental scholarship fund in Vietnam over the past two decades.
This year, 2,100 Vallet scholarships with a total value of VND 40 billion (USD 1.660) are planned for Vietnamese pupils and students in Vietnam ahead of the new school year which usually starts in early September.
Prof Odon Vallet is a doctor of science in jurisprudence, a French religious expert, and a professor of religious history at Sorbonne University. When his father Jean Vallet passed away, he left him a huge fortune worth up to EUR 100 million. All the money has been deposited in the bank, with interest used every year to give scholarships to young people who study well in France, Benin, and Vietnam.
Feeling grateful for his kindness, Prof Tran Thanh Van named the scholarship the Vallet Scholarship Fund.
By the end of 2022, Prof Odon Vallet has sponsored Vietnam with more than 40,000 scholarships with a total value of more than VND 400 billion (USD 16.6 million).
