Minority scholarships are a great way to help add funding for college. With the rise of Asian students on college campuses, more universities and organizations see the need for diversification and offer Asian scholarships to meet the growing demand. Students that classify themselves as: Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Filipino, or Pacific Islander may be able to find an Asian scholarship for college. In addition to being a part of this minority group, many of these scholarships also require a student to have strong academic success as well.
