Meet the 2019 Rose Pak Memorial Scholars.

After careful consideration by the Rose Pak Community Fund scholarship committee, we awarded six outstanding API college students to the 2019 Rose Pak Memorial Scholarship. These students not only demonstrated 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 towards school tuition to lessen the financial burden with their studies. More information about the Rose Pak Memorial Scholarship can be found here.
