Dear all,
Once again, Queens College is a partner institution with the Asian & Pacific Islander American Scholarship Fund (APIASF).  This means that our students are eligible to receive generous funding and to participate in mentoring and other professional development activities through APIASF.  APIASF relies on volunteer readers, so I'm writing to invite you to take part in reviewing applications for the APIASF Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institution (AANAPISI) Scholarship Program.  Applications can be reviewed completely online and at your own pace.

The APIASF AANAPISI Scholarship Program is a collaboration with AANAPISIs and the communities they serve to provide scholarships, expand institutional capacity and mobilize local resources to help foster economic development.

How can you help?
volunteers are needed between October 16, 2015 and November 16, 2015. Readers will have access to a secure website to review scholarship applications. To ensure that there are enough readers to evaluate all applications, readers are asked to commit to reading a minimum of 20 applications. Each application takes approximately 10-15 minutes to review.

All volunteers, new & returning, are required to review a training document (PDF). The training covers basic information related to education in the Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander communities and provides an overview of the review and scoring process.

All readers must have an undergraduate college diploma and/or 7-10 years of work experience. Readers do not need to be of AAPI ethnicity.

If you are interested in volunteering as a reader for the APIASF AANAPISI Scholarship Program, please complete the new reader registration form online at https://aanapisischolarship.apiasf.org/reader/.

For more information, please contact me or Cecilia Marshall, Director of the APIASF Scholarship Program, at cmarshall at apiasf.org<mailto:cmarshall at apiasf.org> or call (202) 747-7235.

Thank you very much for considering this rewarding opportunity to help students fulfill their academic and professional goals.
