Asian Pacific Islanders for Professional and Community Advancement (APCA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, employee resource group of AT&T Inc. A major goal of APCA is to promote diversity and its advantages throughout our corporation and our communities. One way we accomplish this goal is by granting annual non-renewable scholarships to college-bound high school students.
