Through generations, the Yeh family has generously supported education through gifts to universities and other organizations. Below is a snapshot of some of those gifts:
The Yeh family gift to the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology supports an endowed professorship in the HKUST School of Business, now one of the highest ranked business schools in the world. The gift was matched by Synergis Management Services and further funds were donated by the government of Hong Kong.
Gifts to Harvard University from the Yeh family support scholarships as well as an endowed professorship. The scholarship fund supports students from mainland China to study at Harvard University. The Yeh family gift also supports the Dr. Jiang Yanyong Visiting Professorship at the Harvard University School of Public Health. The Dr. Jiang Yanyong Visiting Professorship allows public health researchers and practitioners from China to teach and research at Harvard University. It also supports seminars whose aim is to bring together Chinese and American public health academics and practitioners to discuss pressing public health issues and research.
The Yeh family has provided two gifts to support scholarships and overseas studies focusing on China and students from China. The Yeh family gifts support Stanford University professors to participate in overseas study through the Bing Overseas program at a Stanford University campus in China. The scholarship fund supports undergraduate students from China to study at Stanford University.
The Yeh family has supported the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, alma mater of Dr. Geoffrey Yeh, for many years. Donations from the Yeh family have supported several important initiatives including the M.T. Geoffrey Yeh Student Center at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE), the M.T. Geoffrey Yeh Graduate Research Fellowships in the CEE and the M.T. Geoffrey Yeh Endowed Chair in CEE.
