$1000 for Students Every Year

They have this $1000 scholarship every year, and they don't look at your grades or GPA.  This is the CUNY Thomas Tam scholarship.  All CUNY undergraduate students are eligible (Asian or non-Asian).  This scholarship is completely based on a project you may be working on anyway for one of your upcoming classes (or in your job/internship or fellowship.)  One requirement is that your project is related to Asian concerns.  It could be relevant to health, social issues, economic issues, or other concerns in the Asian communities.  If you have already completed a project (whether it is a research paper for a class, a media project, an art work, or any other form of project), I encourage you to apply for this year's Thomas Tam Scholarship (due June 30th).

If you haven't completed any project related to Asian issues, you should plan to do one for next year's scholarship deadline.  (Again, they have been offering this scholarship every year.)  Most likely, you will be doing projects and research papers for at least one of your classes anyway (whether it is health, psychology, sociology, economics, or journalism).  If you can gear it toward an Asian issue, then you would be able to also submit it for next year's Thomas Tam scholarship.  This is what they call "killing two birds with one stone."

Also, your chances are pretty good because it seems like not many student know about this scholarship; not many students apply for this scholarship.

Feel free to contact me at if you need help planning for this and for free proofreading service.  (However, I will not write your paper or do your project for you.)  Here are the scholarship information and application:
