Asian Pacific Islander Faculty Staff Association (APIA) seeks to recognize outstanding students who exemplify the spirit of APIA by achieving academic excellence and demonstrating personal commitment and dedicated service to their community. The Cypress College APIA scholarship of $300 will be awarded to a currently enrolled student in any field.
The student must submit (1) a personal essay (maximum 500 words) of goals and accomplishments including his or her community involvement; (2) a transcript of grades (a printout of the unofficial transcript from myGateway is acceptable); (3) a letter of recommendation; (4) and the application form. Members of the APIA scholarship committee read all applications and select the winner.
Specific eligibility criteria are:

- Plan to be enrolled at least half-time at an accredited 4-year college or university in the fall term 2021
- Demonstrate community involvement or volunteer work

- Letter of Recommendation
The student is required to submit one letter of recommendation from an individual who knows the student and is familiar with his/her accomplishments and leadership activities. A teacher, counselor, work supervisor, community service leader, or an adult familiar with the applicant could serve as a recommender. Recommendations from relatives will not be accepted. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that their recommender submits a letter of recommendation. Recommenders may describe the applicant’s community service, leadership skills, academic accomplishments and future plans. APIA welcomes and appreciates any additional comments about the applicant that
will help the selection committee in the evaluation process.
