As a part of the APIASF Higher Education Summit series, the Asian & Pacific Islander American Scholarship Fund hosts an annual event every June at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, DC. This forum brings together a group of multicultural political leaders, higher education researchers and administrators, representatives from the private and government sectors, community organizations, foundations, and students, to generate an active dialogue on the most significant issues impacting the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community.

Highlights of the event include presentations of and information regarding emerging research by the National Commission on Asian American and Pacific Islander Research in Education (CARE), panels focused on higher education for AAPI students, networking opportunities, and a special reception to recognize the work of initiative leaders in the AAPI community. The Higher Education Summit had become an integral part of APIASF's efforts to help increase access to higher education and the overall academic success of both AAPI and other minority students. This annual event to highlights the unique educational experiences of AAPI students and their needs as a community – which should be part of all policy dialogues in national education agenda-making toward a more inclusive and educated nation.
