The Wang Kuo Tong Memorial Fellowship Fund

About the Fund

Tony K. Wang (BSE ’73, MSE ’75) created the Wang Kuo Tong Memorial Fellowship Fund in honor of his father. Mr. Wang was a self made entrepreneur from a humble family, working 16 hour days, 7 days a week in Hong Kong and Paris. Tony established this fellowship to memorialize his father by offering the opportunity for hard working, high achieving students from Greater China with financial difficulty to come to Michigan Engineering for further graduate study.
