SAN FRANCISCO — The Japanese American Citizens League announces its National Scholarship and Awards Program for the 2013 academic year.
The JACL annually offers approximately 30 college scholarships for students who are incoming college freshmen, undergraduates and graduates, and those specializing in law or the creative/performing arts. There is also a scholarship for those in need of financial aid in this time of rising tuition costs.
Freshman applications must be submitted directly by the applicant to his/her local JACL chapter by March 1. Applications for the other scholarship categories (undergraduate, graduate, law, creative/performing arts, and student aid) are to be sent directly by the applicant to the National JACL Scholarship Committee by April 1.
The application process for the Meiji Gakuin University-JACL Scholarship involves two completely different applications, which can be requested directly from the university. The deadline for this U.S.-Japan scholarship is March 1.
Detailed scholarship program information and applications can be found on the JACL website at www.jacl.org, and clicking “Education” on the menu bar. The National JACL Scholarship Program requires that all applicants be students or individual members of the JACL.
