Remembering Vu

A site dedicated to raising funds for the Vu Nguyen PAR Scholarship

In memory of Nguyen Huy Vu, Feb. 20, 1975-May 15, 2009

Reporter Vu Nguyen, 34, of Long Beach, California, passed away on May 15, 2009, but his full life is one that refuses to be forgotten.

To honor him and help aspiring journalists, Vu's graduate school classmates created a scholarship in his name for members of future Public Affairs Reporting classes at University of Illinois Springfield. More than $15,000 has been raised to date, with scholarships awarded yearly since 2009. We would like to eventually reach our goal of endowment, at $25,000, to keep the fund alive forever.

The PAR program appreciates your support, and Vu would, too. For more about Vu, his career and the many lives he touched, please browse this website. Thanks for visiting, and please, consider donating today!
