- Scholarship Description
The Foundation 649 Scholarship is a grant of $4,000 over the course of 4 years that can be applied to college tuition and expenses. To maintain eligibility each year, there will be a brief check-in and renewal process at the end of each school year. The application consists of a questionnaire and a short essay (1000 word maximum). We want to hear your stories - we encourage creativity and originality (this should not be a rehash of your resume)! Alternate media will also be accepted in place of the essay if you choose (e.g. film, photography, etc.). If you are selected as a recipient, with your permission, we plan to share your submission with our audiences.
Five recipients will be selected. Each recipient will receive an award of $4,000 USD spread over 4 years. The award must be renewed each year to receive successive funds (details to come). Applicant must: Be a degree-seeking, full-time student enrolling in a U.S. accredited university in Fall as a Freshman or transferring from a community college; Identify as Asian American / Pacific Islander; Have a track record of involvement and interest in AAPI communities, issues, or causes; Have demonstrated financial need for the scholarship; Be a US citizen, resident, or foreign national. Undocumented students are also welcome to apply.
