APIA Scholars Jump Start College Tour was developed in partnership with Wells Fargo to provide college planning, leadership training, financial education, and professional development tools and resources to students and their families. Jump Start College Tour launched at Georgia State University in 2013 with 150 high school students, college students, parents, community leaders and educators in attendance.
APIA Scholars works with campus partners to host the tour at Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander – Serving Institutions (AANAPISIs) around the country. AANAPISIs are recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as minority-serving institutions which have a high enrollment of Asian and Pacific Islander American (APIA) students with financial need.
Jump Start College Tour allows APIA Scholars to partner with the nation’s AANAPISIs to better serve communities with large APIA populations. Through the event, APIA Scholars is able to reach underserved students with important information to help increase access to higher education and accelerate their success long-term.
