Jackson and Muriel Lum Endowed Fellowship for Graduate Study Fund established3/31/2017
In 2014, Jackson and Muriel Lum established the Jackson and Muriel Lum Endowed Scholarship at the College of Engineering to provide need-based support to students enrolled full-time in the University of Michigan-Shanghai Jiao Tong Joint Institute (Joint Institute).
Expanding on their commitment to Joint Institute students, Mr. and Mrs. Lum recently made a gift to establish the Jackson and Muriel Lum Endowed Fellowship for Graduate Study Fund. Similar to their undergraduate scholarship, this fund will provide need-based support to graduate students from the Joint Institute who are enrolled at the College of Engineering. Preference will be given first to students who enroll in the Joint Institute Sequential Undergraduate /Graduate Study (JI-SUGS) program; and second, to students who are recipients of the donors’ existing scholarship fund at the College and who pursue master’s degrees at Michigan Engineering immediately following graduation from the University.
In 1982, Mr. and Mrs. Lum founded Logic Controls, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of point of sale (POS) display systems, peripherals and industrial computers. Mr. Lum holds over 40 patents in display systems and products.
