Scholarship Winners

The Kaiser Permanente Asian Association (KPAA) scholarship recognizes students who have been instrumental in bringing a tangible benefit to an Asian community and who demonstrate leadership qualities in either school or community activities.

Congratulations to our past scholarship award recipients, who have demonstrated leadership in many different ways. Whether in the arts or in non-profit service organizations, whether in school-based activities or in the community, all have led a group of people – large or small – in an endeavor that has ultimately resulted in a benefit to others.
