2010 APIASF San Francisco Community Reception

September 24, 2010

The Asian & Pacific Islander American Scholarship Fund (APIASF), the nation's largest non-profit organization devoted solely to providing college scholarships for Asian and Pacific Islander American (APIA) students, held a special community reception hosted by Wells Fargo to help increase awareness of the needs of Asian and Pacific Islander American students and importance of scholarship opportunities in providing critical access to higher education. The reception held at the Wells Fargo Penthouse on Friday, September 24, was attended by nearly 100 community leaders, corporate representatives and students from the San Francisco Bay area.

"We are honored to work with organizations like APIASF and help increase awareness of the needs of some of the most vulnerable students," said Michelle Scales, APIASF Board Member and Director of Diverse Growth Segments at Wells Fargo. "Wells Fargo has a long history of giving back to the communities we serve and one of the best ways that we can invest is to help ensure that deserving students have the resources to not only access higher education, but to achieve educational success."

Since 2003, APIASF has awarded more than $3 million in college scholarships to students across the country and in the U.S. Territories and Freely Associated States. APIASF's vision is to see that all APIA students have the access to higher education and the resources they need to achieve academic, personal and professional success.
