The Vietnamese Culture and Science Association (VCSA) and the LePham family are pleased to invite applicants for the 2012 Nicholas C. LePham Citizenship and Public Service Award. The LePham family and committee is looking to award this scholarship to an aspiring Vietnamese-American student who is able to demonstrate strong civic participation and active citizenship within the community. Changes and improvements can only take place when future leaders organize within the community to address problems. We seek to empower young Vietnamese-Americans to attend college, and to pursue their dreams for further community service and public works.

Applicants will be judged according to their merits in academic, community involvement, leadership, and character. We strongly encourage ALL eligible Vietnamese-American youths to apply. Selection will be conducted by a panel of Vietnamese-American young professionals.  Five (5) finalists will be interviewed in early July 2012, and one (1) winner will be announced by July 15th.

Please help us to spread the word and share with all high school students who are Vietnamese American students.
