National JACL Scholarships

Every applicant must be an active National JACL member at either an Individual or Student/Youth Level. Parent membership will not meet this requirement.


Applicants must be planning to attend a college, university, trade school, business school, or any other institution of higher learning within the United States at the undergraduate or graduate school level in the fall. Students deferring enrollment will not qualify for the scholarship program.

Applicants may apply under only one scholarship category. The only exception to this rule is that applicants may apply for consideration for the Abe & Esther Hagiwara Student Aid Award in addition to another category; however, a sucessful applicant will only receive the higher of the two awards applied for.

Entering freshman applicants must be high school seniors. Creative & Performing Arts applicants cannot be professional artists. Past recipients of JACL scholarships or awards are limited to a total of two awards.
