Asian Adult Adoptees of Washington (AAAW) is proud to offer this grant opportunity to Asian and Pacific Islander adoptees in our community who are pursuing to enrich themselves in their cultural background/understanding. Although there are two deadlines, the Board of Directors (BoD) understand there could be events, classes, conferences, etc., that occur prior. Therefore, the BoD are implementing rolling application months where an applicant can send in their grant application in-between the two deadlines. Applications sent to the BoD during the rolling months will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. *The maximum award during rolling months is $300.00.*
