Dak Lak is a multicultural province which is home to 49 ethnic groups. There are approximately 159,600 ethnic students, or about 25 percent of the total, enrolling from kindergarten to high school in the province during the 2020 – 2021 academic year. Ethnic minorities represent around 15 percent of close to 11,000 students pursuing study at universities and colleges across the province.

After 21 years of operation, the Vu A Dinh fund has presented more than 90,000 scholarships to students from ethnic minority groups and those living in coastal areas and on islands./.
