Richland College Partnered with Asian & Pacific Islander American Scholarship Fund to Host College Information Session

Student Success/Sustainable Community Building–Richland College partnered with the Asian & Pacific Islander American Scholarship Fund (APIASF) and sponsor Wells Fargo to host a Jump Start college information session on November 14. The program provided Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) high school juniors and seniors and their parents information about college planning, leadership training, financial education, professional development tools and resources, and a tour of the college and its programs and services. 

Earlier this year, APIASF awarded scholarships totaling $42,500 to 13 full-time, degree-seeking AAPI Richland College students, and Richland College recently received a $1.5 million grant to expand and advance student learning success outcomes for AAPI students.
