Set up in 2007 and named for the patriotic scholar who lived at the beginning of the 20th century, the foundation, a non-governmental and non-profit organization, is run by the Vietnam Union of Scientific and Technical Associations.
The first International Education Quintessence Prize was awarded in 2007 to Bui Van Nam Son for his translation of Immanuel Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason.
At that time he was not a member of the foundation’s governing board.
