Robert Jyr Chen Fellowship

User Rating:  / 0


Dr. Theresa Chen ’74 completed her PhD in pharmacology from the School of Medicine and Dentistry and Dr. Robert Jyr Chen ’73 (PhD) completed his studies at the University of Rochester’s engineering school in materials sciences. Dr. Chen has established this legacy fund in memory of her husband. The goal of this fellowship is to benefit graduate students in engineering who have financial need. In particular, this annually awarded scholarship aims to help students from foreign countries to pursue their goal of a master’s or PhD degree in materials science at the University of Rochester.

Students interested in applying for the Chen Fellowship should complete the University of Rochester’s graduate program online application for their program of interest.

Preference will be given to students that previously completed a degree at National Taiwan University and who are studying at the University of Rochester for an advanced degree in materials science.
