Obtaining a college education at these economic trying times has been financially challenging. Most degree programs, if not all are costly and almost impossible for low income families. Chances of getting into universities are tough considering the expenses of the college education, dormitories, and other schooling needs which will always occur along the way. Nowadays, there are organizations that offer multiple scholarships providing hope to the students who aim to get a bachelor degree and become professionals.
One of the organizations that offer scholarship grants is the Asia & Pacific Islander American Scholarship Fund or APIASF. They have several scholarship grants for degree programs and one of them is the APIASF Wells Fargo Scholarship that can grant a one-time scholarship of $2,500 to a qualified student. APIASF has offered scholarship grants to Asian and Pacific Islander American (APIA) students since their studies find that these students have fewer opportunities to achieve higher education in the past. APIASF has started back in the year 2000 and has granted scholarships to hundreds of students yearly. In the year 2017, they have granted around 400+ scholarships to students from 40 US states and other federal countries.
APIASF aims to provide students access to higher education regardless of their ethnicity or national origin. The $2,500 APIASF Wells Fargo Scholarship One-time Scholarship is one of the doors they opened as proof of their mission statement. APIASF Wells Fargo Scholarship is offered to high school seniors and college student taking up a bachelor degree for any degree programs in an APIASF accredited College or University. Furthermore, APIASF and Wells Fargo have developed a program called Jump Start College Tour which provides resources for the students to succeed during college. APIASF and its partnership with Wells Fargo have continuously helped students finally achieve the college education they deserve.

Some of the requirements are the applicant should be an Asian American and/or Pacific Islander ethnicity, have a minimum GPA of 2.7 on a 4.0 scale or have earned GED, must apply for federal financial aid using the FAFSA and must submit one letter of recommendation online.
