For 30 years, the AABA Law Foundation has provided scholarships and grants to law students committed to the Asian Pacific American community. This year, the Foundation awarded $32,500 in scholarships (including a $10,000 scholarship  funded by the Minami, Tamaki, Yamauchi, Lee and Kwok Foundation). In addition, the Foundation will be awarding a summer grant for a law student to work with a public interest agency and a $35,000 in public interest grants. The public interest grants were made possible through a generous $10,000 matching grant donation from the Nassiri & Jung Foundation and Raymond L. Ocampo Jr. also challenged us with a generous $5,000 matching grant for a public interest grant in addition to his Family scholarship. The generosity of AABA members also funded a third public interest grant this year.

Your donation to the AABA Law Foundation will provide crucial opportunities to the next generation of APA lawyers.
