Meet the 2022 Rose Pak Memorial Scholars.

After carefully considering the Rose Pak Community Fund scholarship committee, we awarded thirteen outstanding API college students the 2022 Rose Pak Memorial Scholarship. These students demonstrated not only outstanding academic and leadership qualities but also the willingness to give back to the community in the future with their education. Each scholarship recipient was awarded a one-time scholarship toward school tuition to lessen the financial burden of their studies.
