Thanks to the kindness and generosity of the Hoi An community and friends abroad, we now have three scholarships on offer for 2020!
Each scholarship provides a disadvantaged child with the chance to hone their craft and grow artistically. In addition, recipients are able to develop important skills to improve their future prospects.
Study after study has shown that kids who participate outperform those who do not in just about every area. Subsequently, those same kids grow into adults with stronger ethics and community values. For that reason, VAPA’s scholarships contribute to both the success of the individual, and the growth of the community as a whole. Learn more about the value of the arts.
Applications for our scholarship program are now open. Before you apply or nominate someone, please refer to the eligibility criteria for each award.

2019 Mischewski Award:
Đặng Ngọc Quỳnh Quyên (aka Sumi)
Born in 2008, Sumi has been dancing with Ms Kate since 2017. In that time, she has shown herself to be dedicated and passionate about dance. Moreover, Sumi has demonstrated behaviour consistent with VAPA’s core values.
Sumi love to draw and dance. During VAPA’s 2018 summer camp she was asked to draw in response to various pieces of instrumental music. Sumi’s work indicated an above average understanding of the required task. More importantly, it showed Sumi is not afraid to make her identity visible through her art.
Sumi was awarded the Consolidation Prize at the 2017 Provincial Internet Olympiad for English, and is thrilled at this opportunity to develop further as an artist.
Congratulations Sumi. 🏆 We hope your journey inspires more young people to embrace the arts and start growing their potential!
