Mr. Zhong Yang was selected as the recipient of Asian American / Asian Research Institute’s 2010 CUNY Thomas Tam Scholarship. The Scholarship, in honor of the late Dr. Thomas Tam and administered by AAARI, awards $1,000 annually to a single qualified undergraduate student currently enrolled at 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.

An undergraduate student at Baruch College, Mr. Yang was honored at the Asian American / Asian Research Institute’s 9th Annual Gala. Mr. Yang’s project, Helping Asian Students Get Into CUNY, consisted of short video to help Asian students navigate the procedures required for applying to CUNY, as well as the preparation needed before applying. “It is very important for students especially for new immigrants to apply to college. I want to make sure that excellent Asian students have a chance to become enrolled at CUNY in order to obtain an advanced education.”

Due to the impressive list of projects submitted for consideration for the 2010 CUNY Thomas Tam Scholarship, the family of the late Dr. Thomas Tam made an additional contribution to support the award of $250 Honorable Mention scholarships to each of the following two students:
