Grants For Asian Americans

America is a county with a diversity of cultures in its population. With a growing number of Asian American citizens residing in America, social acceptance, equal rights and opportunities have become one of their major concerns aside from racial discrimination. Several foundations and organizations have been generous in giving grants to support the causes of Asian American communities. These grants are either financial aid or opportunities for free education.

The purpose of the study is to investigate how the use of social support varies among different cultures.
