APIASF Scholarship Program
APIASF Scholarship Program offers many scholarships for students who are of Asian and/or Pacific Islander ethnicity and enrolled or planning to enroll in a U.S. college or university.

Students must be U.S. ctizens or citizens of the Republic of the Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia and the Republic of Palau. Eligible students must have a grade point average of at least 2.7 in order to apply.

Scholarships for high school seniors entering college for the first time include the BBCN Bank Scholarship, the Coca-Cola Foundation Scholarship, the FedEx Scholarship, the Sara Lee Foundation Scholarship, the Toyota Scholarship, and the United Health Foundation Scholarship.

Scholarships for students who are currently enrolled in college include the Frances Sonn Nam Memorial Scholarship, the NBCUniversal Scholarship, and the Verizon Foundation Scholarship. Students may apply for these scholarships in their freshman, sophomore or junior year of college.

The scholarships are funded by the Asian & Pacific Islander American Scholarship Fund (APIASF), founded in 2003 in Washington, D.C. This non-profit organization provides scholarship opportunities for Asian and Pacific Islander students whose family income is below the poverty level. The organization also focuses on students who are the first ones in their family to attend college. Eligible students must have good academic skills and be active in supporting their communities.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in JANUARY of each year, and the award amount is usually $2,500 - $5,000.
