The scholarship will offer up to 2 awards of $1,500 to Asian students studying accounting, political science, public policy, business administration or related fields. The application deadline is February 20, 2015. We would appreciate your help in forwarding this information to any students who may be interested or major advisors.


Asian Americans in Public Finance strives to enhance, develop and promote the professional lives and careers of dedicated Asian Americans in public finance as well as those interested in pursuing a career in public finance or the public sector. Public Finance is the study of government’s impact on the economy, and a profession in public finance involves the funding and financial management of public goods, services, and facilities provided directly by state and local governments, through its agencies or community not-for-profit organizations. A profession in this field requires a commitment to public service.

The Matt Fong Asian Americans in Public Finance scholarship honors the memory of former California state treasurer, Matt Fong, for his dedication to public service, active involvement in state politics, and direct impact he had in opening up opportunities for Asian Americans in the public finance industry.  Matt Fong’s life embodied the mission of the Asian Americans in Public Finance organization.

ArtPower! February 20 Showing of ZEIT DER KANNIBALEN (TIME OF THE CANNIBALS) – 8pm


ArtPower! Film believes that the economics/business departments at UCSD would be interested in the film we are screening and/or meal on February 20 at the Loft about young people trying to cave out a career in today’s globalized corporate world, struggling through times of economic crisis -they accept entry level jobs anywhere across the globe, neglecting their personal relationships and instead bond with their colleagues on  these overseas assignments.


This dark satire is considered the German counterpart to the American film The Wolf of Wall Street, receiving many accolades when it screened at the Berlin Film Festival in 2014. Two highly paid consultants have been touring the world’s dirtiest and most impoverished countries for years seeking to satisfy their clients’ hunger for profit. Their goal is to ascend to the company’s top echelon and finally be made partners. The unwritten company rule: they’ll need to secure their final promotion by their mid-thirties or else they’ll be sidelined. Reality exists merely as a dusty silhouette behind the windows of their air-conditioned luxury hotels.
