The title of this scholarship program calls back to a time when many Asian immigrants looked upon America as a mountain of golden opportunities for themselves and their families. Awardees of the scholarship seek dreams of higher education, which are not only the dreams of the students but also of their parents and extended family. This year, 15 first-gen AAPI high school seniors will be awarded $2,000 each.
Applicants must identify as Asian American or Pacific Islander (AAPI). Applicants must currently be enrolled as a high school senior and be attending college by Fall 2022. Applicants must be first-gen, meaning your parents did not complete a college or university degree. Applicants do not need to be a U.S. citizen. DACA students or undocumented students must have a Social Security Number (SSN) or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) to be eligible for this scholarship.
