Salvador Uy Memorial Scholarship Fund
UNIS, with the support of the Uy family, has set up the "Salvador Uy Memorial Scholarship Fund" in honor of the significant impact Sal has left on UNIS.
This scholarship represents what Sal meant to UNIS, his family, and his friends. Sal was named the 1983 U Thant Scholar, the highest achievement that a UNIS graduate can receive. The U Thant award is presented each year to a Tut 3 (11th grade) student at UNIS who is in high academic standing, whose life and contribution to the school have embodied the principles of the UN Charter, and whose activities and involvement at UNIS have clearly demonstrated respect for other individuals. Nominees for the award are screened for academic eligibility and are voted on by the Tutorial House Faculty based on selection criteria provided.
The Salvador Uy Memorial Scholarship will be granted to the U Thant Scholar to support financial expenses incurred during his/her senior year at UNIS. The Class of 2020, which Sal's son Oliver is part of, has already pledged $1,000 to start this fund. We plan to create an endowment fund for this scholarship to live in perpetuity.
