Dawn Lozado Awarded 2001 Asian American Scholarship

Dawn K. Lozado '02 , a psychology major who is the incoming president of the Boston College Asian Caucus, has been named winner of the sixth annual 2001 Asian American Scholarship.

Lozado traveled from Morocco, where she had been studying this semester, to accept the award at the April 28 Asian Culture Night celebration.

The scholarship, which covers 75 percent of senior year tuition, is given to a junior who exemplifies the highest Asian American ideals and aspirations. Along with academic performance and financial need, candidates are judged on their commitment to community service and leadership as evidenced by extra-curricular activities on and off campus.

An aspiring labor attorney from Ridgewood, NJ, Lozado has been involved in UGBC, the AHANA Leadership Council, the South Asian Students Association and the Asian Caucus. She is credited with organizing a number of forums on campus to discuss issues of ethnic and racial diversity.

"Since my freshman year I've grown a great passion for Asian and Asian American issues and hope to continue to help raise that awareness at BC," said Lozado, who added that she hopes to help improve and expand multicultural programs and events at BC.

"Boston has so much to offer when it comes to multiculturalism," she said, "and I want to bring more of it to BC and show students new ideas and opportunities that they may not know about."

Other finalists for the award were Trinette Kahm, Brian Lam and Deepinder Mayell.
