Fastweb honors students of Asian-Pacific heritage with new scholarship resource for undergraduate and graduate students

CHICAGO, May 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Fastweb (www.fastweb.com), the leading website for scholarship and financial aid information and a member of the Monster network, honors students of Asian-Pacific heritage during Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month by highlighting a wide range of scholarship opportunities to help them reach their educational goals.

May is Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month, a celebration of Asians and Pacific Islanders in the United States. According to Asianpacificheritage.gov, "the month of May was chosen to commemorate the immigration of the first Japanese to the United States on May 7, 1843, and to mark the anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869. The majority of the workers who laid the tracks were Chinese immigrants." 

Fastweb has gathered an impressive group of opportunities in their new resource, Scholarships for Asian Pacific American Students. Awards of various amounts up to $16,000 are available in academic areas such as education, math, science, psychology and more for students exhibiting leadership qualities and demonstrating financial need. Applications for these undergraduate and graduate opportunities are being accepted now. Additional scholarships can be found in Fastweb's scholarship directory for Asian or Pacific Islander students.

Fastweb provides helpful and insightful online resources to help students find ways to fund their education. Resources are available online and always at no charge. More programs for all students can be found on Fastweb.com.
