One of the most interesting things we have noticed throughout the United States in the last decade was how diverse the population has become on college campuses. You see all kinds of cultures and races joined together to take their education to the next level. However, perhaps the largest growing population in colleges are Asians. This makes us very proud because we have been advocates for Asian scholarships for a very long time. So, when the population of Asians going to college raises that just means that scholarship providers will take notice and start creating programs or scholarships that Asians can enter to allow them to obtain the money the need to attend college. Thankfully, that is exactly what happened!
Communities That Are Considered “Asian”
Pinning down what an Asian is can be difficult. This is due to a number of reasons but perhaps none greater than the fact that there are so many communities that are classified as Asians. So, in order help our visitors from becoming confused we decided to list a few of the most popular communities that are associated with being Asians.
(There are many more communities associated with being “Asian” we just included the most popular ones above. To see the full list please visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_sovereign_states_and_dependent_territories_in_Asia.)
