Tule Lake Project

The Foundation is assisting Roger Daniels, the nationally-known historian, and Barbara Takei, the writer and organizer on Tule Lake, in their archival research for a book they will jointly author. The book, on the subject of the Tule Lake concentration camp, will be published by the University of Washington Press and is tentatively titled "America's Worst Concentration Camp." The Foundation's funding comes from a federal grant.


Thank you for your interest in the ABAS Law Foundation’s scholarship program. The Foundation awards scholarships to law students and very recent law school graduates from local law schools who have demonstrated potential for community service and leadership in the Asian-Pacific Islander community, academic achievement, and financial need. In recent years, the Foundation has predominantly awarded scholarships to students and recent graduates from Lincoln Law School of Sacramento, U.C. Davis School of Law, and the University of the Pacific’s McGeorge School of Law.
