The National Association of Asian American Professionals (Seattle chapter) is providing $1,500 scholarships to two Asian Pacific American High School seniors entering college in the fall.
“The NAAAP Scholarship has opened the doors of endless opportunity,” said Christine Ito, a 2009 scholarship recipient. “[It has] motivated me to pursue my dream of being an elementary school teacher with the greatest enthusiasm. I want to exercise my leadership in a way that influences our younger generation and teaches them to embrace the world with open arms.”
The deadline for the 2010 High School Scholarship program is Sept. 22. ♦
