Statistics Ph.D. student Juan Francisco Mandujano Reyes has been awarded the School of Computer, Data and Information Sciences (CDIS) Ce-an Zuo & Chao-ming Wang Scholarship. Mandujano Reyes is the first student to receive the newly-created award, which funds academic expenses that enable student success.
The $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to an international CDIS student every other year. Donor Chandler Zuo, a UW-Madison alum (MS Statistics ‘12, MS Computer Sciences ‘14, Ph.D. Statistics ‘15), created the scholarship after he recognized a lack of scholarships available to support international students. Named after Zuo’s grandparents, the Ce-an Zuo & Chao-ming Wang scholarship is an endowed fund that will benefit students in perpetuity to help fund their educational endeavors.
