The David See-Chai Lam Centre for International Communication at Simon Fraser University is pleased to announce the Paul Tai Yip Ng Memorial Award for 2017 Best Graduate Student Paper. The winner will receive $1,200 at the award ceremony in Spring 2018.

Mr. Peter Eng, family members, friends and colleagues established this fund within the David Lam Centre at Simon Fraser University in 1997 in memory of Mr. Peter Eng’s father, the late Mr. Paul Tai Yip Ng. Presently the fund provides for the annual awarding of a prize to a student who has composed an outstanding paper on intercultural issues, particularly as they apply to people in or from Canada and the Asia Pacific region.

The award will be given to the best graduate student research paper that advances our understanding of intercultural issues, particularly as they apply to people in or from Canada and the Asia Pacific region. The paper must have been completed as part of the applicant’s graduate studies at Simon Fraser University in 2017, and can be a maximum of 30 pages long. This award is open to current graduate students from all disciplines at Simon Fraser University. Awardee(s) must agree to attend the award ceremony in Spring 2018.
