Asian Pacific American Community

McDonald’s APA Next

McDonald’s has been supporting Asian Pacific Islander American (APIA) students pursuing their educational dreams for over 15 years. In 2003, McDonald’s/the Asian McDonald’s Operators Association were one of the founding members of APIA Scholars (formerly APIASF), the first organization dedicated to providing scholarships to underserved APIA students. In 2008, McDonald’s started its national college workshop program, a one-stop shop, where trusted guest speakers would arm students and parents with critical information and practical tips to navigate the college admissions process.  During that time frame, RMHC/ASIA were the scholarships McDonald’s offered to the APIA community.  Today McDonald’s has expanded to create the APA Next Education Program which works in partnership APIA Scholars to make college more accessible to Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islander students. Our scholars also come from a variety of backgrounds with recipients representing over 28 ethnic groups from West Asia to the Pacific Islands and Hawaii.  Come check out what McDonald’s APA Next program has to offer—and decide what’s next for you.
