A National Program Serving Local Communities

In the years since its founding in 1980, the NSRCF has awarded $808,000 in scholarships to 815 deserving students. This unique program travels to a different part of the United States each year and has already served the Southeast Asian community in 28 cities and regions. Scholarships are open to graduating high school seniors of Southeast Asian ancestry who are living in the designated area. Scholarships range in amounts from $2,000 to $250.

In 2019 the NSRCF Scholarships will be awarded in the Twin Cities - Minneapolis and St. Paul - Minnesota. The NSRCF works with a Local Awards Committee that oversees the process of recruiting applicants for the awards, screening the applications, and naming the scholarship recipients.
