Undergraduate Scholarships and Awards

Herbert Y. and Stella S. Chang Scholarship

Established 2007


Herbert Y. and Stella S. Chang are alumni of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. They have 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 scholarship carries a stipend of $2,000 for one year. The recipients are recognized at the annual ECE Awards Banquet in April.
