The YEE Fellowship is made possible by a generous bequest of Drs. Warren and Ming Ting Yee. Dr.
Warren Yee received his Ph.D. degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Illinois in 1943 and
was a partner in the Detroit firm of Harley, Ellington, Pierce & Yee Associates and later was the founder
of Bio-Tech Research Laboratory, Inc. in Washington, D.C. He died in 1984.
Dr. Warren Yee was known for thinking of others, especially relatives in China, before he thought of
himself. His wife has requested that income from the funds be used to support Chinese graduate
students in the College of Engineering. Special consideration will be given to students from inner
provinces or inner province universities (not coastal) in China.
Each award will be $5,000. This will be paid in two payments of $2,500 in fall and spring terms. We
anticipate awarding five fellowships for the 2020-2021 academic year. Applicants cannot graduate
before May 2021 as they must be a full-time student both Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 terms. Please see attached for more info.
