Saburo Muroga Endowed Fellowship

Saburo Muroga earned his Ph.D. at the University of Tokyo in 1958 and visited Illinois that summer while doing research at MIT. He noticed that the Illinois professors were much nicer to their students and he eventually became a professor here. Muroga is known for the mentoring of his graduate students. This fellowship was established by Shigenori Matsushita, a former Toshiba executive, to honor Professor Muroga, with whom he studied in 1962-1963. It is awarded to outstanding graduate students in computer science.
