David Ta-Keng Huang was only 24 years old when he passed away. Though, he lived more in those years than most have been able to live in a lifetime. David excelled in all aspects of life. While demonstrating a high level of academic achievement, he had a keen interest in athletics, music, and literature. He was the very definition of a well-rounded individual and despite his success, David consistently gave back to the community in which he lived. With this in mind, we are proud to offer the David Ta-Keng Huang Memorial Scholarship in the amount of $1,500 to a deserving student.

We, the members of the David Huang Scholarship Committee, look forward to reviewing your nominations/applications. It is our hope that the applicants will make us think, even if only for a moment, of David. Thank you and best wishes.
