Chen and Liu Family Family Scholarship

The Chen and Liu Family Scholarship was endowed by alum Zhigang Chen (PhD ’97), his wife Jun Liu, and their two sons.  Zhigang completed his PhD under Professor Roy Campbell and was co-founder of Vosaic, the industry’s first Web video streaming company, during his graduate studies at Illinois.  Zhigang is also the co-founder and CTO of Vuclip, building the world’s largest mobile video transcoding and delivery infrastructure.  The Chen and Liu family are very grateful for what Illinois did for Zhigang’s career.  They were eager to give back to recognize the accomplishments of today’s students.
