The Organization of Chinese Americans is now accepting scholarship applications for the 2011-2012 academic year. Asian Pacific American high school seniors and college students currently in their sophomore and junior year are eligible to apply. Please visit OCA’s website at www.ocanational.org for application and eligibility requirements. Deadline for OCA Scholarships are Monday, April 4, 2011.
OCA understands the importance of supporting the next generation of Asian Pacific Americans and hosts a number of leadership development programs designed specifically for APA youth. Based on the belief that education is a process that begins at birth and continues throughout one’s life, OCA’s programs aim to create a solid foundation from which our youth can grow.
Since 1993, OCA has been providing assistance to deserving APA students to pursue their dreams of a higher education through the OCA Scholarship Program. Recognizing the lack of resources and access to quality education for underserved APA students, OCA has partnered with foundations that are committed in providing educational opportunities to their communities and the future generation of APA leaders.
