Wah Lum Warrior Spirit Scholarship Award seeks to recognize and provide support to graduating high school students who have shown exceptional perseverance in overcoming special adversity during their school careers, and have developed a meaningful plan for their future. Kung fu, one of the chief martial arts taught at Wah Lum Academy, is understood as “hard work and perseverance”; with the Warrior Spirit Award, we are seeking to honor the great labor young people go through in overcoming hardship from within and without, and the special effort needed to transform their experiences into a meaningful trajectory in their lives and that of their community.
This scholarship administered by the Wah Lum Kung Fu & Tai Chi Academy of Malden, will present up to FOUR graduating seniors with an award of  $2,000 for each winner.
