Asian-Pacific Scholarship Program Begins

 WASHINGTON – OCA, a national organization dedicated to advancing the social, economic, and political well-being of Asian Pacific Americans, is pleased to announce that it is accepting 2011 applications for the OCA-AXA Achievement, OCA-UPS Gold Mountain, and OCA-Verizon College scholarships. Each scholarship is valued at $2,000 and is nonrenewable. Applications for all scholarships are due by April 4, 2011.

“For over 10 years, OCA has been providing scholarship assistance to those with financial need, who otherwise may not have the opportunity to attend college,” said Ken Lee, OCA National President. “OCA is proud to be able to recognize students who have demonstrated a strong commitment to academic achievement and civil engagement.”

In order to be eligible for the OCA-UPS Gold Mountain and OCA-AXA scholarships, students must be a current Asian Pacific American (APA) high school senior entering their first year of college, demonstrate financial need, be a permanent resident or U.S. citizen, and have a minimum grade point average of 3.0 or above (on a 4.0 scale). OCA-UPS Gold Mountain scholarship is intended for APA students who are the first person in their family to attend an institution of higher education. The OCA-AXA scholarship is geared for students who have dedicated time to community service and demonstrated leadership ability.

Current undergraduates who are studying technical majors and are entering their third or fourth year in college may apply for the OCA-Verizon College scholarship. Applications for the OCA-Verizon College Scholarships must be submitted online.
