Robert I‐Jen and Sophia Shui‐Kan Jung Graduate Scholarship in Engineering for Returning Students

Jung Graduate Scholarship Recipients

If you are a new applicant who is enrolled in the fall, please see the Jung Graduate Scholarship in Engineering for New Students.

DONOR: This scholarship was established by Robert I‐Jen (’68, MSME) and Sophia Shui‐Kan Jung to support Kansas State University, the College of Engineering and graduate students.

PURPOSE: This graduate scholarship recognizes outstanding engineering students from the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and Republic of China (ROC). This scholarship is a supplemental scholarship with an award level of $6,000 per year for doctorate students and $3,000 per year for master's students.

ELIGIBILITY: An applicant for this scholarship must be a current student in good standing within a College of Engineering on‐campus graduate program. Master’s students must be in the thesis option. Recipients of this scholarship must be citizens from the PRC or ROC. The scholarship is for one year and can be renewed once during a degree program. Scholarship recipients will need to reapply for the second year of the scholarship. Recipients of a College of Engineering Ph.D. Fellowship are not eligible to also receive a Jung Graduate Scholarship during the same academic year.

TIMELINE: Nominations for this scholarship will be collected in the spring of each year. The selection process will be completed during the summer, and funds will be awarded starting in the fall semester for the following academic year.

SUBMISSION OF NOMINATION MATERIALS: The materials noted below should be submitted in PDF format to ergp@k-state.edu by April 1.

  1. Jung Graduate Scholarship in Engineering application form
  2. Curriculum vita including academic history, publications, presentations, awards and honors, professional services, and professional experiences
  3. Transcript(s) from K-State and other schools the applicant has attended (in English).
  4. Two letters of recommendation that support the student’s application packet. At least one of the letters should be from a K-State faculty member. Each letter should summarize the student’s qualifications highlighting exceptional achievement, describing the student’s potential as a researcher and indicating why the student deserves the award.
