Filipinos have a long history and large presence in the United States, yet they remain underrepresented in many fields.

Only 37% of Filipinos in the US complete a Bachelor’s degree, and only 9% complete a postgraduate degree. These figures are even lower among U.S.-born Filipinos. A Harvard Kennedy report states that U.S.-born Filipinos are less likely to obtain a college degree compared to their Filipino immigrant counterparts and other U.S.-born Asian Americans. 

In order to boost the representation of Filipinos in academia and the workforce, it is critical that Filipino-Americans have the resources they need.

This scholarship seeks to support any Filipino-American who is interested in community service. 

To apply, please write a 350-word essay telling us about your story and the impact you would like to make on the Filipino-American community.

Experience: Must have community service experience
