We are pleased to host the 2nd Annual Community Fundraiser for the Asian & Pacific Islander American Scholarship Fund (APIASF). APIASF is the only nonprofit organization in the United States that provide scholarships specifically for Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) students pursuing a college degree. The event will be held at the Asian Community Development Council’s Asian Community Center on Wednesday, June 21st from 6 PM – 8 PM. The event is open to the public, but please RSVP for the event. The event will include food, beverage, entertainment, and raffle prizes.
Last year, the community fundraiser raised thousands of dollars to support local AAPIs in their pursuit of a college degree. The scholarships are awarded to AAPIs who meet the following requirements:
- Live at or below the poverty level, or are otherwise of low socioeconomic status;
- Are the first in their families to attend college;
- Are representative of the AAPI community’s diversity, geographically and ethnically, especially those ethnicities that have been underrepresented on college campuses due to limited access and opportunity; and
- Have placed strong emphasis on community service and leadership as well as solid academic achievement
