America has a set of traditional folkways. We as a peoples ( please note the plural of this term )have constructed

and political consequences thereof and pretaining to, the liberation of the middle class.
The set of folkways which emerged out of this histroical aspect, to this very day is under continual change, is the American
ethos you are now a part of. We as a peoples, as you should be likewise be cautioned, have not made it exactly

2006 ~ Winner Paul Park
Our first profile, Paul is a broadcast journalism major at Syracuse University who is spending his
sophomore year abroad in France.
In a short couple of years a few things have changed in terms of education: student loan interest rates have increased,
and school tuition and board rates are at their highest. Unless you’re in the top one percent of the wealthiest Americans,
I find it hard to believe students and their families feel comfortable paying tens and thousands of dollars on education alone.
Moreover, families with multiple children in college have a more difficult time financing it. Various organizations realize
this considerable burden, and they reach out to students to help provide a quality education. The Asian Pacific Islander Scholarship
Fund, or APIASF, is one exceptional organization that reaches out to the Asian and Pacific Islander community, and furthermore
embodies the ideals of quality and affordable education.
When I met staff members of the APIASF in Washington, D.C., every word that came out of their mouths was only words of
support and encouragement. I truly have never met a group of individuals who were so excited and optimistic about our futures.
That shows that APIASF really cares, and only wants the best for all of us. Also, I was comforted by the fact that everyone
I met from APIASF was so relaxed, sincere and comforting — I never expected that from such a group of professionals.
It was really exciting for me to be a recipient of a national scholarship. Two thousand dollars goes a long way. For some,
it covers a term’s tuition, and for others the scholarship covers books, supplies and other fees. For me, the scholarship
helped me avoid taking out loans, and deepening my family’s financial burdens. In addition, this scholarship not only
covered textbooks and supplies, but it also gave me hope to continue on the path of becoming a prominent Asian American news
Words cannot express how grateful I am to APIASF and its supporters. The fact that numerous companies and individuals support
APIASF shows their confidence in the Asian and Pacific Islander community as well as my generation to continue on to succeed
and make a difference. I will always be thankful to APIASF and its supporting corporations and individuals for believing in
me. I am confident that APIASF will continue to fulfill dreams and aspirations for many years to come.
After receiving the scholarship in 2005, I went on to attend Syracuse University in New York to double major in broadcast
journalism and political science, and minor in French. After completing my freshman year, I decided to study abroad in France.
Currently, I am enrolled at the Syracuse Center and Université de Marc Bloch in Strasbourg.
Mahatma Gandhi once said, “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” APIASF has already made that
step to become the change for our world by providing for and supporting the Asian and Pacific Islander youth. The next step
is to experience and see this great achievement in our community.
NYU New Home of Intensive Program in Yiddish Language, Literature, and Culture
New York University has houses an internationally recognized intensive summer program in Yiddish language
beginning in 2005. The YIVO Institute for Jewish Research’s Uriel Weinreich Program in Yiddish Language, Literature,
and Culture, established in 1968, also includes an in-depth exploration of the literature and culture of East European/American
The program has drawn students from all over the world, including Poland, Russia, Slovakia, Israel, Australia,
South Africa, Chile, Argentina, China, Korea, Japan, and western Europe, as well as the United States and Canada.
“All of us at NYU are delighted by this programmatic collaboration between two good neighbors, which
will greatly benefit students interested in the Yiddish language and the study of Jewish culture,” said Matthew Santirocco,
dean of NYU’s College of Arts and Science.
“Our collaboration with YIVO will be important for the advanced study of a historic language and culture
and for the training of graduate students who represent the next generation of scholars, researchers, and teachers,”
added Catharine Stimpson, dean of NYU’s Graduate School of Arts and Science. The program is situated in YIVO’s
Max Weinreich Center of the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research and will be run out of NYU’s Skirball Department of Hebrew
and Judaic Studies.
“We are very pleased to be entering into cooperation with the world-class faculty of the Skirball Department
of Hebrew and Judaic Studies and look forward to many years of success together,” said Paul Glasser, associate dean
of the Max Weinreich Center.
“The Weinreich program will complement the offerings of NYU’s Rauch visiting professorship in
Yiddish literature and culture, inaugurated in 2003, to make the university a leading center for undergraduate and graduate
studies related to Yiddish,” said David Engel, director of graduate studies in the Skirball Department of Hebrew and
Judaic Studies. “Since the Skirball Department of Hebrew and Judaic Studies already offers the largest and most comprehensive
array of courses in Jewish studies outside of Israel, the initiation of a full program in Yiddish language and literature
builds naturally upon one of NYU’s great strengths. Both YIVO and NYU will now be able to take full advantage of the
two institutions’ physical proximity, sharing their considerable tangible and intellectual resources.”
The program’s centerpiece is an intensive language course designed to develop proficiency in speaking,
reading, and writing, as well as cultural literacy, in a concentrated period of time.
This summer’s program will take place from Monday, June 27 to Friday, August 5, 2005. The YIVO Institute
has been located just off Union Square, about a mile from the NYU campus, since 1999. The program was previously held at Columbia
University, where founder Max Weinreich’s son, Uriel, taught linguistics from 1951 to 1967. Uriel Weinreich was noted
for his contributions to Yiddish Studies, sociolinguistics, and dialectology, and for the increased acceptance of semantics
as a branch of linguistics.
Since its inception, the program has graduated more than 1,300 students, including many of the leading scholars
in Yiddish Studies/Jewish Studies in the world. These include Steven Zipperstein, chair and Koshland Professor in Jewish Culture
and Jewish History at Stanford University; Dovid Katz, professor of Yiddish literature and founder of the Vilnius Yiddish
Institute, Vilnius University, Lithuania; Ruth Messinger, former Manhattan Borough president; and Tim Whewell, correspondent
for BBC Radio World Programmes.
New York University, located in the heart of Greenwich Village, was established
in 1831 and is one of America’s leading research universities. It is one of the largest private universities, and collectively
has more students studying abroad and more international students than any other college or university in the U.S. Through
its 14 schools and colleges, NYU conducts research and provides education in the arts and sciences, law, medicine, business,
dentistry, education, nursing, the cinematic and dramatic arts, music, public administration, social work, and continuing
and professional studies, among other areas.
Founded in 1925 in Vilna, Poland as the Yiddish Scientific Institute and headquartered in New York since 1940,
YIVO is devoted to the history, society, and culture of Ashkenazic Jewry, and the influence of that culture as it has developed
in the Americas. As the only pre-Holocaust scholarly institution to transfer its mission to the United States, YIVO is the
preeminent center for the study of East European Jewry and Yiddish language, literature, and folklore.
