For over 30 years, the AABA Law Foundation has provided scholarships and grants to law students committed to the Asian Pacific American community. In 2019, the Foundation awarded over $70,000 in scholarships (including a $10,000 scholarship  funded by the Minami, Tamaki, Yamauchi, Lee and Kwok Foundation). Our award recipients will utilize their scholarships for school, to provide direct legal support to APA and underserved communities, and pursue opportunities to build successful careers in law.

The Foundation awarded three $10,000 public interest grants to community organizations. The Nassiri & Jung Foundation gave $10,000 each to Asian Americans Advancing Justice - Asian Law Caucus and Asian Americans Advancing Justice - Los Angeles to support the work they do to advocate for the Asian American Community. The Raymond L. Ocampo Jr. Foundation’s $10,000 grant went to Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Asian Law Caucus to support their work with low-income APA communities.

In addition, the Foundation will be awarding summer grants for law students to work with a public interest agency. In 2019, grants were made possible by the generosity of  The Salle Yoo and Jeff Gray Charitable Fund, who funded $10,000 for summer grants - one $5,000 grant for a law student to work at a public interest law firm, and one $5,000 grant for a law student completing a judicial externship.

Thank you once again to all our donors! Your support will provide crucial opportunities to the next generation of diverse APA lawyers dedicated to serving their communities.
