Asian American and Pacific Islanders make up a diverse, vibrant group of people with backgrounds of more than 50 countries and regions, celebrating rich cultural diversity and cultural traditions.
Students who are Asian American or Pacific Islander make up around 8% of those attending universities and colleges within the US. Enrollment among students in this group is up nearly one-third since 2000, however, a majority of the members are underserved in their overall needs, particularly when it comes to getting a 4-year degree at a major college or university.
The bi-annual Asian American/Pacific Islander Scholarship is meant to encourage diversity in academia. This $750 award will help high school seniors and current undergraduate students who are Asian American/Pacific Islander pay their tuition or student loans.
The application deadline is Aug 1, 2021. Winners will be announced on Aug 31, 2021.
The scholarship award is $750. It will be awarded to 1 winner every 6 months.
The winner will be publicly announced on Aug 31, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
