The Choice: Special Section for underrepresented minority academic programs

Dear Scholarships, Fellowships, and other Academic Programs for Underrepresented Minorities --

Thank you for visiting our site!
We developed a series of posts on this website to speak directly to academic programs for underrepresented minorities because we know that you have the power to choose whether your program will include or exclude Pacific Islanders.

If you're one of the growing number of academic programs that already recognizes that Pacific Islanders are underrepresented -- thank you! Please don't hesitate to contact us with questions, or let us know if there's something we can do to help you. And if you're one of the academic programs that includes some Pacific Islanders groups (but not others), we're giving you access to information about how the entire Pacific Islander American community is underrepresented.

If your program does not include Pacific Islanders, we want to help you make an informed, educated decision about whether you should choose to continue to exclude them. We've set up this site, and a series of posts written for you, so you have easy access to the facts.

Below are links to the Question-and-Answer-style posts we wrote to help you come to an informed decision. If you have a question we haven't addressed, please let us know by following the "more questions" link at the bottom.

We hope that this information helps you make an informed choice, and we hope that you choose to include Pacific Islanders along with their fellow underrepresented minorities.
