The Kimmy Foundation established the Long Nguyen and Kimmy Duong Endowed Scholarship in Engineering in January 2017 to provide need-base support for students in the A. James Clark School of Engineering.
The Kimmy Foundation, led by Ms. Kimmy Duong, supports education and social causes. Ms. Duong believes in helping others get started and become self-reliant. Many of her nieces and nephews have graduated from the University of Maryland, some having received Pell grants and work study positions after transferring from Montgomery College. Having immigrated to the U.S. from Vietnam alone in 1975, Ms. Duong believes in the power of hard work to get ahead. She wishes to support academically talented students with demonstrated financial need who are working hard to realize their dreams.
