Asian Pacific Community Fund - Taiwanese American Scholarship Fund

Website: Asian Pacific Community Fund


The Asian Pacific Community Fund (APCF) is excited to partner with local donors to offer scholarship programs annually to financially assist students in their pursuit of higher education. Through a competitive process, scholarship recipients are selected by a review committee based on academic merits, community involvement, leadership skills as well as recommendation from a mentor. Many of our scholarship programs are intended to support low-income youth, and several programs encourage students to study locally at a community college or state university.

10 scholarships of $5,000 each will be awarded to high school seniors and first year college students planning to attend a university/college in the U.S. in coming fall.  The Taiwanese American Scholarship Fund (TASF) is focused on helping economically challenged Taiwanese American youth fulfill their dreams of obtaining higher education.
