The Asian Pacific Fund selected Vice Chancellor Jerry Kang as the 2018 Recipient of the Chang-Lin Tien Leadership in Education Award, which preserves the legacy of the late and former UC Berkeley Chancellor Chang-Lin Tien’s unique contributions and recognizes those who aspire to reach the highest positions in academia.

As part of this honor, the Asian Pacific Fund has provided funding for a one-time fellowship for UCLA graduate students who conduct research on the Asian and Pacific Islander experience and communities. The 2018 Chang-Lin Tien Fellowship will acknowledge up to two deserving Graduate Students for their academic accomplishments, as well as demonstrated commitment, efforts, and contributions in the areas of equity, diversity and inclusion.
