ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIPS

2017 Scholarships

In past years, the APSEA Foundation has awarded as many as a dozen college scholarships annually to youth and young adults from the Sacramento region, including a number for high-need, high-achieving students. Through the generous donations of corporate, community organizations and individuals, scores of high school and junior college students have received scholarships to attend universities, ranging from in-state universities to Ivy League’s on the east coast.

The APSEA Foundation strives to expand the understanding and knowledge of our future leaders by highlighting the nexus between government, politics, business, and communities. Thus, the Foundation, in partnership with the Asian Pacific Islander Capitol Association (APICA), will continue its efforts to develop on a summer fellowship program, a unique program to include both experiences at the Capitol and state agencies.

What are the details of the award and how and when are scholarships paid?

APSEA Foundation will issue scholarship awards in one installment on April 18, 2017, unless specified by the sponsor organization funding the scholarship award.
Checks are either presented at the Gala Dinner, mailed from APSEA Foundation to each recipient's home address, or made payable to the college for the student. This will depend on the sponsorship guideline.
The award may be used to pay for education related expenses only.
