Established in 2006, the AWIB Scholarship Fund is unique, as it focuses on promoting and developing Asian females to become our future leaders.

The 2009 Scholarship recipients will receive $2500 each, plus two round-trip airline tickets on Southwest Airlines. The scholarships will be given out on January 5, 2010 at a reception and ceremony from 6:00 – 8:30 pm, Con Edison, 4 Irving Place (14th Street), in New York City. AWIB members, supporters and members of the press are invited.

The AWIB Scholarship is listed as one of the most competitive and prestigious scholarships for Asian women by Financial Aid Finder. Candidates must meet a list of requirements that includes two personal essays and references that support their achievements as leaders. Each application goes through several rounds of reviews and scoring, and ultimately six are carefully selected. The scholarship allows students to continue to pursue volunteer endeavors that might not be possible without funding, or enable them to see their entrepreneurial or leadership projects come to fruition.

The 2009 AWIB Scholarship Award Winners:

• Melanie Chow, Brown University, Class of 2011
Major: English; History of Art & Architecture
As Editor-In-Chief of Visions, the Asian American Art and Literary magazine at Brown, Melanie understands the importance of creating a voice for the Asian community. Visions represent the shared heritages, cultures, ethnicities and varying political beliefs and opinions of the Asian Community. Under her leadership, VISIONS has jumped from 800 readers to more then 1200 within one semester.

• Leah Dion, Mount Holyoke College, Class of 2010
Major: Biology
As a Board Member of C.A.U.S.E. (Creating Awareness and Unity for Social Equality), Leah teaches others that community service is a crucial part of the college experience because it teaches lessons that can not be learned in the classroom. She also leads a group of volunteers to the Holyoke Soldiers’ Home to visit and provide friendship to discharged veterans, on a weekly basis.

• Tian Tian Feng, University of Maryland, Class of 2011
Major: International Business & Supply Chain Management
As part of her leadership role as VP of Advocacy for Society for Green Business, she drafts proposals for a new and more efficient recycling system at the University of Maryland and works with local businesses to encourage recycling. One of her green initiatives also recently won Ernst &Young’s Your World, Your Vision competition at the Maryland level.

• Amy Kao, Carnegie Mellon University, Class of 2012
Major: Business Administration
As the recently crowned Miss Pennsylvania Teen American, Amy leveraged this responsibility to volunteer at a battered women’s shelter to converse and become a mentor to young girls within the shelter. She devotes her time to working with these girls in regaining confidence and changing their self-image. It was through this experience that she founded People-to-People, which works with the Pittsburgh ONE STEP program to surround abuse children with positive influences and friends that care.

• Tasmiha Khan, Wesleyan University, Class of 2012
Major: Neuroscience and Behavior
She transformed a baby-sitting program at a religious organization into an interactive school-like program called, Junior Muslim Ummah of America. Through this program she tutors and engages children in productive activities, and was in charge of creating lesson plans, activities and quizzes to promote fun learning. She knew her efforts made an impact when a student came up to her after class one day, hugged her and said “Thank you Ms. Khan, you don’t know how much it means to me to learn from you.”
