The Wang-Ji-Thong Family Scholarship
FOR HEALTH PROFESSIONALS
The Wang-Ji-Thong Family Scholarship For Health Professions offers three $2,500 scholarships to be awarded to students interested or currently pursuing studies in the health field. The winners will additionally have the opportunity to shadow health professionals at ASIA’s International Community Health Center (ICHC).
Interested candidates must be part of the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) or refugee and immigrant communities and must be studying a health-related field. Each candidate must submit a copy of their SAT or ACT score(s), a typed essay, and a resume/CV that includes volunteerism. A letter of recommendation must be emailed directly to Kelly Le at email@example.com.
A scholarship selection committee, including Dr. Wang and Mr. Ji, will review applicants based on academic standing, community engagement, financial need, and essay responses. Finalists will sit through virtual interviews and applicants must also submit a letter of recommendation from a teacher, school official, or community leader.
Winners will receive an initial $2,500 award, and a one-time renewable $500 book scholarship will be awarded upon completion of the first-year progress report and commitment to mentor incoming-year scholarship awardee(s).
