AJ Wang Foundation - Scholarship Fund


AJ Wang Foundation was established as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in November, 2008 to provide funding to various educational institutions to support students. The Foundation is led by a couple who immigrated to the U. S. to pursue the "American Dream.” It is through hard work and their will to overcome financial obstacles that they have become successful entrepreneurs. As their life-long goal to “give back” to the communities that supported them to realize their dreams, they established the Foundation to support those with the greatest need. The Foundation is currently supported and staffed by volunteers. The Scholarship Fund provides awards for up to three consecutive years for students attending one or more of the designated community colleges. The scholarship can be used for tuition, fees, books, housing, transportation and/or food and does not need to be included in the total financial aid package the students may receive.
