Tribute to Top Corporations and College Scholarship Awards Brunch

We
cordially invite you to join us for brunch to celebrate the unwavering
support of our esteemed corporations during the challenging times of
COVID-19. Without their generous assistance, we wouldn't have been able
to overcome the difficulties posed by the pandemic. This event will be
an opportunity to recognize and applaud our top corporations who have
been our pillars of strength.


For over three decades, USPAACC’s College Scholarship Program has provided essential financial assistance to deserving students through the generous contributions of major corporations and Asian American businesses. 100% of funds we raise for scholarships goes to the students. USPAACC covers administrative, travel and hotel costs so the students could come to the conference, meet their sponsors and peers, and observe the proceedings. They leave the conference with a burning desire to give back to their communities.


We eagerly look forward to seeing you and come together to celebrate the success and dedication of our top corporations and scholarship winners.
