Asian Scholarships

The most common student-specific scholarships and grants are those available to minorities. Many organizations and colleges have funding available to make campuses more diverse or reward funding to groups they feel have been traditionally underserved in higher education. As the number of Asian students increases on college campuses, many organizations have also seen an increased need for scholarships and are more generous than ever in the scholarships they award. Most of the scholarship awards will be merit-based, meaning your academic achievements such as GPAs and standardized test scores will matter, and some will have major restrictions, as many groups work specifically to bring more minority students to certain fields of study.



Make sure to also contact your college about school-based awards that may be available to you for attending that particular college. Many colleges and universities have minority scholarship funds set up by alumni who would like to help future minority students pay for college. And if you’re applying for many of the merit-based awards, don’t rule out other merit-based scholarships, as you’re probably eligible for many more if you have a stellar academic record.

Below are examples of Asian scholarships and grants you may be interested in pursuing. To find out if you’re eligible or for additional information about scholarships based on ethnicity or other criteria, conduct a free college scholarship search at Scholarships.com.
