CUNY Thomas Tam Scholarship

2010 Recipient

Zhong Yang (Baruch College)
Project: Helping Asian Students Get Into CUNY

In order to help Asian students who are applying to CUNY, I made a film with my friends and instructor. The film covers most of 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. This film consists of eight parts.
