2014 APCA Scholarship Program

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.


For the 2014 APCA Scholarship Program, we will award 15 national scholarships worth $2000 each. One national scholarship will be reserved for children or dependents of APCA members. Applicants who are not awarded a national scholarship will be considered for state scholarships.

  • APCA National Scholarships ($2000 scholarships)
  • Students residing in the following states will be eligible for the APCA State Scholarships:
  • - California ($1000 scholarships)
    - Georgia ($2000 scholarships)
    - New Jersey ($1000 scholarships)
    - Washington State ($1000 scholarships)
    - Midwest States (IL, MI, OH, WI, IN) ($1000 scholarships)


The APCA Scholarship Program is open to:

  • All full-time graduating high school seniors in good academic standing (minimum GPA 3.40 on 4-point scale, or 4.25 on 5-point scale), of any ethnic or cultural background, who plans to attend an accredited college (2-year and 4-year) or vocational school.
