This award is a tribute to the life and work of renowned Chinese American actress, dancer, and comedienne Jadin Wong. Ms. Wong was a lifelong pioneer and innovator in the field of performing arts and strove to ensure opportunities for Asian Americans through her efforts as a performer and talent agent.

The fellowship aims to recognize exemplary work that will continue to inspire young artists and the Asian American community for years to come. The fellow will receive a cash award of $6,000 to provide career assistance, professional development training, and support to help them pursue their career as a dancer and develop new work.

A4 will administer an open application process.
