Vietnamese American Alumni Chapter

The Vietnamese American Alumni Chapter (VAAC) is dedicated to UCI alumni of Viet heritage. Our goal is to maintain a solid bond with UCI through UCI Alumni Association by sharing cultural, social, professional functions and benefits with VAAC members, providing support to UCI Vietnamese Student Association, offer mentorships and scholarships to UCI Vietnamese students and through these initiatives, build a strong presence for our Vietnamese identity at UCI and around the world. 

For 2024, we are hosting a  matching Challenge, Vietnamese American Alumni Chapter Scholarship Match! Alumna Jenny Tran '05 is matching every gift made to the Vietnamese American Alumni Chapter scholarship fund, dollar for dollar, up to $500!

It's not how much you give, but that you give! Join us in supporting fellow Anteaters today!
