The Thomas Tam Scholarship is funded by an endowment established by the City University of New York in recognition of Dr. Thomas Tam’s contributions as a former member of the CUNY Board of Trustees, founding Executive Director of the Asian American / Asian Research Institute, and leadership in the Asian American community. The Scholarship awards $1,000 to an individual qualified undergraduate student that is currently enrolled at any of the twenty-one colleges within CUNY, who has demonstrated creativity in the communication of the concerns of the Asian American community in areas such as Health, Education, Culture, Media and Advocacy. Last year’s recipient was Ms. Baozhen Xie, a student at Brooklyn College for her project on health and nutrition among Asian seniors.
The 2015 CUNY Thomas Tam recipient will be honored at AAARI’s 14th annual gala on Thursday, November 19, 2015.
