KPAA Scholarship

Kaiser Permanente Asian Association (KPAA) scholarships recognize graduating high school seniors who have been instrumental in bringing tangible benefit to an Asian community and who have the potential to be leaders of the future. In order to be eligible, you must either attend high school or reside in the Northern California Kaiser Permanente service area. Please see eligible zip codes. The Kaiser Permanente Asian Association Scholarship Program was launched in 2000. Since its inception, we have awarded 107 scholarships totaling $287,500. In 2018, we are pleased to offer seven scholarships of $3,500 each.
