  • 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.

This counts for Polynesians too right?

@Anna R: I'm not sure if you're going to see this but you don't need to be employed in a job to make a resume. You can just put on there your academic stats, your extracurriculars, your volunteering experience, and any other awards, achievements or scholarships you have.

I am interested in applying for this, but when I try to apply it says I have to make a resume, which I can't because I'm not currently employed in a job. I am only a senior student in high school.
