Pacific Islander American News - Summer Catch Up

Over the summer, our posts were written specifically for underrepresented minority academic programs, to give them easy access to the reasons why they should choose to include (rather than exclude) Pacific Islanders from their scholarships, fellowships, and other opportunities. Those posts are now archived, and can be accessed in a reader-friendly Question-and-Answer-format by following the link on the top right-hand side of our homepage, or by clicking here.

We dedicated so much time to write posts specifically for underrepresented minority academic programs because they are so important to our mission: increasing higher educational opportunities for Pacific Islander Americans, by increasing the number of underrepresented minority programs that recognize them as underrepresented.

Ultimately, the choice (include or exclude Pacific Islanders) is theirs, and we want to make it easier for them to see why Pacific Islanders deserve to be included in their definition of "underrepresented minority."

At the same time, there are been a lot of news that we've wanted to cover.

Now we can catch up!

First on the List: some of the new data on America's growing Pacific Islander community. Stay tuned...
