To be eligible, the student must be a resident of Orange County at the time of graduation and have at least one Asian parent. The student must also either have graduated from High School in 2013 or be in their second or third year of college at present time.
The student awardees will be chosen based on the following criteria:

We require the candidates to supply a scholarship application packet by October 5th, which includes:
- A verified copy of their school transcript of records

From the list of submitted scholarship application packets, a short list of qualified students will be invited for a personal interview, at which time, the topic of the essay will be provided to the candidates. The awardees will be selected by end of October. The scholarship grants are awarded to the student awardees at the ABAOC 22nd Annual Recognition and Awards Gala to be held on November 16, 2013, at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim.
