The National Association of Asian American Professionals – Boston (NAAAP Boston) is the local chapter of NAAAP, an international non-profit organization that empowers Asian Americans through leadership development, professional networking, and community service. Our scholarship serves to recognize outstanding high school seniors who have demonstrated leadership inside and outside the classroom and contributed meaningfully to their communities. This year, we are also launching the NAAAP Boston PRIDE Scholarship in partnership with NAAAP Pride, with the goal of empowering Asian and Pacific Islander LGBTQ+ youth to continue pursuing their dreams as future leaders.
All Massachusetts high school seniors who are of Asian/Pacific Islander descent with demonstrated financial need are encouraged to apply. Candidates are evaluated on academic achievement, extracurricular activities, community service involvement, and financial circumstances. Historically, awards have ranged from $2500-$5000.
