In April, the Farmers Insurance Group of Companies and the Asian & Pacific Islander American Scholarship Fund (APIASF) announced a two-year partnership devoted to providing 32 scholarships to APIA students for the 2009–2010 academic year.
“The impact of Farmers partnership on the APIA community will be immeasurable,” said Neil Horikoshi, APIASF president and executive director. “Not only will we be able to provide immediate assistance to underserved students through scholarship funding, but we will be able to reach countless other students, families, and communities through the marketing initiatives made possible by Farmers’ generous support.”
Since 2003, APIASF has awarded more than $1.8 million in scholarships. APIASF’s vision is to see that all APIA students have the access to higher education and the resources they need to achieve academic, personal, and professional success. ♦
