Herbert Y. and Stella S. Chang Scholarship
Herbert Y. and Stella S. Chang (PhD '64 and MS statistics '66, respectively) established this endowed scholarship to support female students of Asian, Hispanic, or African American heritage. The intent is to encourage recipients to study for and pursue a career in engineering. The scholarship is awarded annually.
The recipients must be juniors or seniors in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with an outstanding scholastic record. Recipients must maintain a 3.0 GPA. Preference is given to female students of African-American, Hispanic, or Asian heritage.
Selection Process :
In September the ECE Department distributes scholarship data forms to students in the top 15% of the junior class and the top 15% of the senior class. The Scholarship Committee then reviews the scholarship data forms and identifies the students to receive the award.
The recipient(s) will be recognized during an annual Student Awards Banquet. All student recipients are featured on the second floor of the ECE Building's Student Honors Wall.
