Wang ’24 Receives 2022 AALAM/Dow Fund Scholarship
06.10.22 —Tiffany Wang ’24 has been named as the recipient of the 2022 AALAM/Dow Fund Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded annually by the Asian American Lawyers Association of Massachusetts Scholarship (AALAM) in conjunction with the Harry H. Dow Memorial Legal Assistance Fund (Dow Fund). Tiffany was presented with her award by Mayor Michelle Wu, a past recipient of the scholarship, at the annual AALAM banquet on June 6.
“As someone with very little connection to Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) legal professionals, receiving this award is so valuable for learning more about existing connections between AAPI communities without legal access and those in the legal profession,” said Wang. “Even more importantly, being welcomed into this community means I now have the opportunity to open up doors for others, whether that be my fellow AAPI law students or community organizations I volunteer with.”
Since 1997, AALAM has awarded an annual AALAM Scholarship Award to an Asian American law student who demonstrates leadership potential, maturity and responsibility, a commitment to making a contribution to the Asian American community and other indicia of excellence, whether personal, professional or academic.
