Queer Asian and Pacific Islander Pride Scholarship Fund

Each year, the Queer Asian & Pacific Islander Pride Scholarship Fund will award scholarships totaling $16,000 to deserving applicants. “The goal of this landmark scholarship program is to help eradicate the isolation, invisibility, homophobia and heterosexism faced by thousands of Asian and Pacific Islander lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning youth living in the Bay Area and beyond,” said A&PIWC’s executive director John Manzon-Santos. “An equally important outcome will be that all teachers, parents and young people who learn about the Pride Scholarship will be reminded that their Asian and Pacific Islander students, children and friends might be struggling to come out and need their support.”


Scholarship applicants must be 22 years old or younger, of Asian or Pacific Islander descent, identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning (LGBTQQ), live in the San Francisco Bay Area, be a senior in high school, have a high school diploma or GED, or be attending a college or university and indicate financial need. Ed Tang, a Chinese immigrant, successful businessperson, father and gay man, established the Pride Scholarship to help Asian and Pacific Islander LGBTQQ youth achieve educational pursuits and dreams, proudly and without shame.
