WHAT IS THE ICFAC SCHOLARSHIP FUND: ADVANCING SOCIAL JUSTICE FOR ASIANS?
The Advancing Social Justice for Asians Scholarship Fund was founded to address anti-Asian sentiment and attacks upon the Asian community. While the public spotlight has focused on discrimination against East and Southeast Asians in the United States, the broader story of violence and discrimination against Asians, along with the complex intersectionalities of Asian American history, continues to be ignored. The recent anti-Asian hate crimes are not in fact a reaction to COVID-19, but rather a symptom of hundreds of years of discrimination, exclusion, and objectification.
The ICFAC Educational Scholarship Fund covers the advancement of studies for topics surrounding social justice for Asians – from supporting those pursuing learning and research in the topic, to sustaining ICFAC’s continued arts, educational, and community initiatives, fiscal sponsorships, resources, opportunities, and building the Advancing Social Justice for Asians scholarship fund.
The Advancing Social Justice for Asians Scholarship awards $500 to a graduate or advanced degree student with an interest in advancing social justice for Asians. Those interested in pursuing a career in law, politics, journalism, education, community organizers, and social justice activists are encouraged to apply. Learn more and/or apply.
With your support, we will continue to build opportunities, resources, and programs for the advancement and empowerment of the Chinese Diaspora creative community and beyond.
