Eugene A. Cheng (AB ’71) has established the Dr. David K. Cheng Scholarship Fund to provide need- based support for undergraduate students enrolled in the University of Michigan – Shanghai Jiao Tong University Joint Institute (UM – SJTU JI). The UM-SJTU offers specialized degree programs in China in an English-language format, where students can apply to transfer to the UM College of Engineering. Conversely, UM students can study engineering and liberal arts courses in China led by SJTU faculty.

In honor of Mr. Cheng’s father and engineering professor, Dr. David K. Cheng, this endowed fund will support both students from SJTU attending UM and students from UM attending SJTU. Mr. Cheng is the President and Chief Investment Officer of Triad Global Asset Management, located in the greater Los Angeles area.
