About the program:
Each year since its inception, ASIE has awarded scholarships in the amount of $500 each to deserving Indo-American students. Starting this year ASIE will be awarding scholarships, a minimum of $1000 and up, based on the final vote of the ASIE selection committee. The total amount for this year’s scholarship program is $10,000.
The annual scholarships are the result of funds generated by the association from professional development events, special events, contributions from sponsors and members.
