USPAACC strongly believes in investing in our future leaders. Since 1989, over a million dollars in scholarship benefits have been awarded through USPAACC. Major corporations have established their Hallmark Scholarships with USPAACC, and Asian American businesses have stepped forward to support the Scholarship Program and endow their own scholarships.
Today, between ten and twenty scholarships ranging from $2,500 to $5,000 each are being awarded every year to high school seniors nationwide for their post-secondary education. Over 3,000 applications are received annually.
Scholarship recipients will be awarded at CelebrAsian 2015 Procurement Conference during June 3-5, 2015 at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel in Bethesda, Maryland.
