The Minority-American experience is one that is filled with challenges.
As an Indian-American, I was culturally, emotionally, and socially confused for most of my life.
At school, I enjoyed playing basketball and listening to the latest hip hop album that dropped. However, at home, I watched Bollywood movies with my mom and enjoyed Indian street food like Pani Puri.
I felt as if I had two separate identities for different moments in my life. Unfortunately, I believe this is an experience that many other Asian American students can resonate with.
This scholarship will support an Asian-American student whose multicultural experiences have strongly influenced their current perspective.
All Asian-American (including Middle Eastern) students who are juniors in high school or older are eligible to apply. First-generation applicants will be preferred.
