The OCA-UPS Gold Mountain Scholarship is an excellent scholarship opportunity for Americans with Asian and/or Pacific Islander ethnicity. This program awards a number of two-thousand dollar scholarships every year. This year, 15 scholarships worth $2,000 each will be awarded to students.
Who is eligible for the UPS Gold Mountain Scholarship Program?
To be eligible for a Gold Mountain Scholarship, an applicant must be an Asian Pacific American student entering their first year of college in the fall. Furthermore, the student must:
- Have demonstrated financial need
- Have a minimum of a 3.0 GPA
- Be a first-generation college student (in other words, students must be the first in their family to attend college).
What does the scholarship application include?
The UPS Foundation requests that applicants send in an 8 part application, which includes a rÃ©sumÃ©, a high school transcript, college acceptance letter (of your future school), a print-out of one year’s cost of attendance at said college, a print-out of your Student Aid Report, a letter of recommendation, a statement of financial aid, and an essay (one paged, single spaced). The essay prompt and other parts of the application can be found on the scholarship’s application page.
