Asian Pacific American Heritage Month 2022 Scholarships

Asian Pacific American Heritage Month 2022 Scholarships
Liz Montenegro

As we celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, we reflect on the enormous contributions of Asian Americans and share their culturally rich history. Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders make up the fastest-growing racial group in the United States, with more than 23 million it total. However, API individuals, communities, and businesses have been disproportionately impacted by discrimination and criminal acts that have only been exacerbated by the pandemic in recent years. Now more than ever, we need to stand united as Americans against anti-Asian racism.

Since the beginning of our nation, Asian American And Pacific Islanders have not been afforded the same opportunities as other Americans. For this reason, there is a wide variety of scholarships available to help level the playing field and ensure equitable access to educational and career resources. If you or someone you know identifies as Asian American or Pacific Islander, check out these scholarship opportunities below!
