Kwon Family Scholarship

Established 2019


This scholarship was established by Howard A. Kwon (BSEE '88) in memory of his father, Joon T. Kwon (BS Chem ’57), to support outstanding students in the ECE Department who wish to continue their education by pursuing a graduate degree in ECE. 


Recipients must be seniors in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in The Grainger College of Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign who have been provisionally admitted to graduate programs in the ECE Department.  Preference will be given to students with financial need.


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.
