Message from the Director

On behalf of our faculty and staff, welcome to the YSEALI Academy at Fulbright University Vietnam (Fulbright)! Our faculty is a community of dedicated scholars and teachers whose research focuses on ASEAN community. 

YSEALI Academy lead faculty are working together with our affiliate faculty from the Fulbright School of Public Policy and Management, international scholars from the United States and Southeast Asia, industry changemakers, and the U.S. State Department, to design and deliver innovative curriculum on topics around the most pressing issues facing the region. YSEALI Academy Seminar Series will feature experiential learning opportunities that will provide practical knowledge and expand fellows’ connections with regional and U.S. based institutions and experts.  We will also partner with our Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation to offer strategic mentorship and support for alumni who wish to continue projects and partnerships incubated at YSEALI Academy at Fulbright. 

This year, about 120 young professionals are expected to join YSEALI Academy in the inaugural seminar series focusing on public policy, technology & innovation, and entrepreneurship that are relevant to the region. Through the seminars, YSEALI Academy Fellows will expand their knowledge on emerging problems in Southeast Asia to advance career development, and to build a strong alumni network ready to respond to regional challenges. We, at YSEALI Academy at Fulbright, invite you to be a part of this academic and professional community.  

I personally welcome you to our campus in Ho Chi Minh City to meet our faculty, staff, students and fellows. Best wishes for a wonderful New Year!
