NBC News Highlights Girls’ Scholarship Donation in Vietnam

August 31, 2017 — An article by NBC News (Asian America) featuring Vietnamese-American actress Lana Condor highlights a girls’ scholarship started by the actress through The Asia Foundation.

Now that she’s been able to rest after nearly two months of 14-hour workdays, Condor has a new focus: Shortly after wrapping production, she created a scholarship through the Asia Foundation, through which she will pay to put a girl from Cần Thơ through four years of school. The scholarship will cover everything the student needs, including books, food, uniforms, and a bicycle to get to and from school.
