2009 New York Advisory Committee

August 11, 2009

As the APIASF Scholarship Benefit approaches, the New York Advisory Committee (NYAC) held a reception on August 11 to introduce community members to APIASF and our Scholars.

The goal of the NYAC is to increase APIASF's presence in New York and ensure the success of the Scholarship Benefit which will enable APIASF to continue providing valuable programs and services to Asian and Pacific Islander American (APIA) students. As the APIA population continues to grow, there is an increased need for Scholarships, information and mentorship for students. The NYAC is working help all APIA students obtain access to higher education.

A special thanks to DLA Piper for generously providing the space for the reception.
