The Wang Chu Chien-Wen Summer Research Fund

Created to encourage motivated undergraduates to conduct faculty-mentored research projects during the summer.

About the Fund

The Wang Chu Chien-Wen Summer Research Fund was established in 2005 by Tony K. Wang (BSE ’73, MSE ’75) in memory of his mother, Wang Chu Chien-Wen. Although Mrs. Wang never received a college education, she taught her only son, Tony, the values of education, caring, and giving.

The Fund was created with these values in mind: to encourage motivated undergraduates to conduct faculty-mentored research projects during the summer, to write a formal report on their findings, and to present their work to their faculty advisor and peers.

Tony and his wife Vivian returned to campus for the 2012 oral presentations, and graciously hosted a lunch before and a reception afterwards.

Applying for the Scholarship

This fund is for international and domestic students of Sophomore or Junior standing. Domestic students must show financial need (as determined via the FAFSA application and U-M’s Office of Financial Aid).
