Filipino American Society of Architects and Engineers (FASAE) Southern California (SoCal) Education Foundation Scholarship

Scholarship Background

FASAE was established in 1976 with a simple credo-“self-help and community service”. The FASAE story began in 1976 in San Francisco, California when a small group of Filipino-American architects and engineers inspired by Lou Raymundo and Bert Llamas Rosario got together to explore the idea of forming an organization that addresses the concerns critical to minority professionals. This was the time when significant number of Filipino professionals were migrating to the U.S. under the 3rd preference quota of the 1965 Immigration Act.

FASAE grew rapidly in the San Francisco Bay Area. It formed four administrative chapters headed by area vice presidents. In 1980 the Guam chapter was formed followed by the Sacramento-Reno Chapter in 1991. There are also student chapters in UC Berkeley, UC Davis and San Francisco State University.

This scholarship, which is entitled to a select number of students of four academic institutions in the National Capital Region, aims to help deserving students to become future leaders in their individual professional endeavors.
