UVSA seeks to advance excellence in leadership, education and community development to inspire the next generation of youth leaders. UVSA offers organizational grants and student scholarships as described below:
Community Focus – Tet Community Assistance Fund
Each year, UVSA allocates a portion of the UVSA Tet Festival net profits to the Tet Community Assistance Fund. The festival would not be possible without the support of the community and as such, UVSA wishes to ensure the continued growth and support of the community by offering grants to organizations across Southern California. UVSA carefully reviews over one hundred proposals each year from Southern California non-profit organizations that address the needs of the community. Grants are awarded up to $5,000. Over the past 14 years, UVSA has awarded over $1.25 million dollars to community organizations.
Leadership Focus – Youth Scholarships
UVSA is committed to developing the next generation of youth leaders and offers high school students, college students, and its members access to scholarships geared towards attending local, regional, and national events such as camps, summits and conferences. Applications are currently unavailable for youth scholarships at this time.
