Asian American Faculty, Staff & Alumni (AAFSA) Club
The Asian American Faculty, Staff and Alumni (AAFSA) Club was established in 1989 at the University of Arizona to support and recognize the achievements and interests of Asian American faculty, staff, alumni, and students. It is the mission of AAFSA to develop partnerships between UA organizations and community business, professional, and service organizations to promote the academic, intellectual, and cultural needs and interests of the UA community and its broader constituency and to foster greater understanding and appreciation of Asian or Pacific American traditions and heritages.
Awarding scholarships with the charitable support of donors, friends, and the Arizona community is one of the most important things we do! Scholarships provide access to college for students who otherwise could not afford it, bring the best and brightest minds to the UA, and energize the economy through employment, internships, and research.
- Applications for AAFSAA 2019-20 scholarships will be posted soon.
Applications for the Kun Sun and Kyoung Ra Kim scholarships for 2019-2020 will be posted soon.
UA Alumni Association scholarships are awarded in two categories: Merit-based — to attract and retain students of exceptional academic quality, and need-based — for students who demonstrate great financial need. (Need-based scholarship applicants must complete a free application for federal student aid.)
