Is there a cutoff Expected Family Contribution or household income that determines eligibility?
We recognize that applicants come from a variety of financial situations, and that neither the EFC or household income is a perfectly representative number. While they will factor heavily into our ultimate decision, we would also like to hear about additional financial context on you and will consider it as part of your application in a broader, holistic context.
Am I eligible if I am of ________ descent or if my parents are from ________?
We recognize that there may be cases in which a candidate identifies as AAPI but don't fall neatly into a familial bucket, e.g. adoptees. Generally, if you are of AAPI descent and resonate with Foundation 649's mission, we encourage you to apply. However, don't hesitate to email us if you have specific eligibility questions.
