Urgent Need: Scholarship Application Readers until Mar. 18

by | Mar 1, 2018 | NAAAP Blog, National News | 0 comments


NAAAP is partnering with the APIASF. 

Become a volunteer reader with Asian Pacific Islander American Scholarship Fund (APIASF) Mar. 1 – 18.

APIASF is the national’s largest scholarship provider for Asian and Pacific Islander American students.  Last year, APIASF distributed $2 Million to 700 scholars/winners. More than half live at or below the poverty line and 75% are first generation college students.

With more than 5500 applications this year still needing at least two readers each, APIASF needs NAAAP’s help in getting members to read and rate the applications.
