Scholarship Committee

The Scholarship Committee is responsible for administering the Future Leader Award, an Asian American leadership scholarship recognizing high school students who are aspiring leaders in their communities.


In the past, our main events included scholarship applications review, Scholarship Awards Virtual Ceremony, and fundraising events. In 2020, NAAAP Boston awarded a total of $25,000 scholarships to 6 well-deserving students.


Generous donors included TJX, Edwin K. and Mary G. Chin Scholarship Foundation, Richard and Chou Lee Foundation and individual donors, including Mr. Edward Saltzman.


We also launched the NAAAP PRIDE Scholarship in partnership with NAAAP PRIDE. Our upcoming events will include a Roundtable on Asian-Americans in Higher Education and Virtual Trivia Night.
