About the Scholarship

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 current or aspiring students who are Asian American/Pacific Islander pay their tuition or student loans.
