The June Yom Student Award, gift of Eugene Y. Lao ‘91, supports a current UNC Chapel Hill student with a grant of $2,500. We are delighted to be able to offer this award this year to support students during the summer of 2024. These funds can support an individual student to conduct research on an academic/professional project, work on an artistic project, or take an unpaid internship; the focus of any proposed work must be Asian American communities/studies.

Recipients are expected to engage in the project’s work for at least 8 weeks, with an average of 20 hours/week during the summer. Recipients will be asked to meet with AAC staff to check in before the start of work and monthly during the summer, and to provide a brief written summary of the grant’s impact in the last week.

To apply, please fill out the online form (deadline: Friday, April 5th, 11:59 p.m. ET): June Yom Student Award (
