The Brookhaven National Laboratory Asian Pacific American Association established the Dr. Mow Shiah Lin Scholarship to commemorate the life and career of Dr. Lin, who was a distinguished scientist at the Energy Sciences and Technology Department. In honor of his research, remarkable achievements and inventions, this scholarship is granted annually to a student of Asian heritage with a U.S. student visa matriculating toward a doctorate in environmental and energy technology, biology or chemistry at an accredited institution of higher education on Long Island (including Brooklyn and Queens) in remembrance of the manner in which Dr. Lin began his career.
