Building Bridges. Strengthening Communities. Creating Unity.
The API Social Work Caucus is the only student caucus that has created and maintained endowed scholarships at USC. In 2008, the Robert Nishimoto Endowed Scholarship was established. Two other scholarships were established by API Caucus for social work students interested in working with API populations administered by the USC Asian Pacific Alumni Association (APAA), the Social Work Scholarship, and the Royal Morales Scholarship. In 2010, the Paul Chikahisa Memorial Lectureship was established to honor Paul Chikahisa, a respected community advocate, by his wife & alumna Frances & friends.
