      The Yeh Family Philanthropy is pleased to support a full and perpetual fellowship for the Stanford University, Department of Chemistry, Center for Molecular Analysis and Design (CMAD).  

       

      The CMAD sits at the forefront of innovation and risk-taking in Chemistry research by providing a new mechanism for research students to collaborate across disciplines.  CMAD Fellowships allow student researchers to move away from the traditional mold of research education tied to a single discipline and move toward more student-focused, entrepreneurial, and collaborative model.  

       

      This new model will be enabled by granting portable fellowships to graduate students who aspire to solve our world’s most pressing problems, especially in health, energy and the environment.

       

      Fellowships are awarded to students who propose the most innovative research projects. Fellows partner with at least two faculty members, in order to bring a variety of perspectives to bear on their projects. As financially independent scholars no longer tied to a single faculty member, graduate students will be able to pursue their own early-stage interdisciplinary research projects under the mentorship of several faculty members.

      The Yeh Family Philanthropy is pleased to support two Teach for China Fellows for two years, from 2012 to 2014. 

       

      Founded in 2008, Teach For China is an educational non-profit organization committed to closing the education gap in China's under-resourced regions.  Teach For China is working to eliminate one of the greatest challenges facing China today – education inequality – by enlisting the most promising future leaders from both China and the United States in the effort.

       

      As they do so, they are building a movement of young Americans and Chinese who, as they work together to raise academic achievement and aspiration among their students, gain an immutable appreciation for the challenges facing China’s underprivileged youth and become committed to addressing those challenges throughout their lives.  

       

      Teach For China has made promising headway in low income communities in Yunnan and Guangdong, training and placing 200 Fellows who have reached nearly 30,000 students in those regions.
