Attendance at scholarship dinner
Academic achievement is only one facet of a student’s accomplishments.
Leadership in school organizations and on athletic teams is another.
The Asian Chamber is interested in the character that exists deep inside each person.
One of the best ways to get a glimpse of this character is to see his or her willingness to help others.
This is why our scholarship process primarily looks at each student’s record of service to our community.
We feel that it is the best indicator of a person’s potential to become a truly productive and exemplary citizen.
PURPOSE OF SCHOLARSHIP
To honor high school students who demonstrate a commitment to voluntary service to our Las Vegas community.
To honor high school students who demonstrate leadership, citizenship, scholarship, service, and character.
To honor high school students with high academic achievement and a desire to pursue a college education.
The Las Vegas Asian Chamber Scholarship Foundation will award FIFTEEN Scholarships in the amount of $2,000 each.
ATTENDANCE AT THE AWARDS DINNER
The students who win this scholarship are among the busiest people anywhere. They have multiple commitments involving family, school, athletics, and volunteer work.
If we did not have an attendance requirement, it is quite possible that a large percentage of the recipients would not be able to attend, and the awards dinner would feature many empty seats.
With this in mind, we not only have a mandatory attendance requirement, we ask our scholarship screening committee to name several alternates in case any of the potential awardees are not able to attend the dinner.
