Scholarships from the Asian Pacific Community Fund

Asian Pacific Community FundAccording to their website: “The Asian Pacific Community Fund (APCF) is excited to partner with local donors to offer scholarship programs annually to financially assist students in their pursuit of higher education. Through a competitive process, scholarship recipients are selected by a review committee based on academic merits, community involvement, leadership skills as well as recommendation from a mentor. Many of our scholarship programs are intended to support low-income youth, and several programs encourage students to study locally at a community college or state university.”

    • Glad you liked it, Monica. Feel free to spread the word! The Asian Pacific Scholarship Director reached out to me so I could share their scholarships with our blog subscribers. I wish more scholarship providers were so proactive! Community foundations are one of my favorite scholarship sources for looking locally. What’s your experience?
