Created in 2014, TASF (Taiwanese American Scholarship Fund) supports economically challenged students of Taiwanese descent residing in the U.S. with their pursuit of higher education. Through a competitive application process, the funds are applied toward tuition for selected students in their first or second year of college.
TASF is made possible through the generosity of a group of Taiwanese American philanthropists spearheaded by Sean Yu. It is the hope of these donors that their gifts will provide countless students with the opportunity for a brighter tomorrow and make their dreams of a college education come true.
