Scholarships for Asian Americans

Asian Americans are quite a minority in the U.S., making up approximately between 5% and 8% of the total population. Up until recently, they were often grouped up with Pacific Islanders when identifying the American demographics. Now both are regarded as two independent racial and ethnic groups. As a minority group, Asian Americans have less access to higher education. Because of higher education affordability, many choose not to pursue a college degree. For that reason, many charitable and profitable organizations across the U.S. have created education scholarships, fellowships, internships, and scholarship contests to allow access to Asian Americans, especially those who demonstrate academic excellence despite financial need.
