Lillian Gong-Guy Memorial Scholarship

The Chinese Historical and Cultural Project (CHCP) was founded in 1987 to promote and preserve the history and culture of the Chinese and Chinese-Americans in Santa Clara County; additionally, we promote cultural and educational projects for the betterment of the community, including investing in the future of our youth.

Co-Founder Lillian Gong-Guy

In tribute to our late co-founder, Lillian Gong-Guy, who dedicated her life to CHCP and many other community projects, we award the Lillian Gong-Guy Memorial Scholarship to Santa Clara County high school seniors of Chinese descent who demonstrate academic achievement, as well as involvement in their school and community. Scholarships are awarded to exemplary seniors based on academic achievement and a demonstration of community involvement and service. Scholarship awards start at $1,000.

  • Be a Santa Clara County high school senior in the Class of 2019
  • Be college-bound and be able to show proof of acceptance to an accredited college prior to receiving the award
