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.
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.
Applicants must meet all of the following requirements:

"I remember going to the CHCP museum when I was a little girl, with my Grandmother. She would explain to me about our family history and I was excited to see images from past times. Thank you for all your wonderful images and what you do to protect our stories."- Anonymous, Silicon Valley
