Gay Asian Pacific Alliance (GAPA) Foundation Scholarship

Application Deadline: June 9, 2019

The Gay Asian Pacific Alliance Foundation (GAPA) is a grassroots philanthropic organization that provides funds and leverages resources to empower the Asian/Pacific Islander LGBTQ community. The purpose of the GAPA Foundation Scholarship is to celebrate and reward outstanding scholar activists who are making a positive impact on the API and LGBTQ communities. High school seniors, undergraduate, graduate, and trade/vocational school students are encouraged to apply.

The GAPA Foundation Scholarship will range from $1000–$5000, and several scholarships may be awarded in a calendar year. In addition, one outstanding applicant will be awarded the Donald Masuda Memorial Scholarship (co-funded by the Lacuna Giving Circle).


You must be attending in a post-secondary institution in the United States in the fall of 2019. We invite high school seniors, undergraduate, and graduate students to apply. The application is open to students who attend community college, university, and trade/vocational school. International Students and/or non-US citizens are welcome to apply.

Applicants should have a strong history of activism within the API and/or LGBTQ communities; however, applicants do not need to identify as either to apply.
