The Scholarship Gala is an event to honor the awardees of the NAAAP Boston Future Leaders Scholarship Award. Started over 20 years ago, the purpose of the Future Leaders Scholarship fund has been to recognize and celebrate outstanding high school seniors who have demonstrated leadership qualities, community service, and high academic achievement in the Boston and surrounding areas.
The Future Leader Award is a scholarship for aspiring Asian American leaders. The Scholarship Committee prioritizes candidates with demonstrated financial need and evaluates these candidates on academic achievement, extracurricular activities, community service, and leadership related experiences.

In 2015, NAAAP Boston awarded three exemplary students with scholarships totaling $15,000. These scholarships were made possible by generous donors such as Liberty Mutual, MassMutual, and the Richard T.N. Lee Scholarship Fund. Please support the NAAAP Future Leader Award by becoming a sponsor.
