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, Executive Director of the Asian American / Asian Research Institute, and leadership in the Asian American community. The Scholarship awards annually $1,000 to an individual qualified undergraduate student currently enrolled at any of the twenty-one colleges within CUNY, Asian or non-Asian, who has demonstrated creativity in the communication of the concerns of the Asian American community in areas such as Health, Education and Culture.
The 2010 CUNY Thomas Tam recipient will be honored at AAARI’s 9th Annual Banquet during the Fall semester.
The display of this communication can be in the form of written reports, film, video, new media techniques, and the development of performances or materials in the Arts and Sciences.
