TASF (Taiwanese American Scholarship Fund) was established in 2014 to assist economically disadvantaged students of Taiwanese heritage living in the United States with their pursuit of higher education. The money is applied toward tuition for selected students in their first or second year of college after a competitive application procedure.

The generosity of a group of Taiwanese American donors led by Sean Yu made TASF possible. These donors hope their contributions will offer numerous students the opportunity for a brighter future and enable them to pursue their ambitions of obtaining a college education.

All genders are eligible for the award as long as they have a cumulative unweighted high school/college GPA of 3.0 and live in the United States. The scholarships help students pay for their education at a university or college. All majors are welcome to apply.
