gold mountain scholarship
Since 1999, UPS has generously funded the OCA - UPS® Gold Mountain Scholarship. The title of this scholarship program calls back to a time when many Asian Immigrants looked upon America as a mountain of golden opportunities for themselves and their families. Awardees of the scholarship seek dreams of higher education, which are not only the dreams of the students but also of their parents and extended family.
Since its initiation, the OCA - UPS Gold Mountain Scholarship has provided 164 scholarships to Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) high school seniors who are the first in their family to attend an institution of higher education. Last year, 15 scholarships in the amount of $2,000 were awarded.
Established in 1951 and based in Atlanta, Ga., UPS identifies specific areas where its backing clearly impacts social issues. In support of this strategic approach, UPS has identified the following focus areas for giving: non profit effectiveness, economic & global literacy, encouraging diversity, community safely and environmental sustainability.
