Engineering Professor Builds Scholarship with Alumni's Help
When electrical engineering professor Dr. Gil Lee established a scholarship fund at the University, he turned to former students to help boost its impact.
knows the power of education, but today’s college degree comes at a cost that can be daunting for many. So Lee has a clear message: Use your education to help those students coming behind you.
Engineering Professor Honored for Informal Education Work
Dr. Gil Sik Lee, an electrical engineering professor in the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science, was chosen for an IEEE Educational Activities Board (EAB) Meritorious Achievement Award in Informal Education, which he will receive at the IEEE Meeting Series in Phoenix in November.
Lee is the founder and CEO of IntelliChoice, a nonprofit tutoring program working in 13 lower-income neighborhoods in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. He received a Community Hero Award from Tech Titans for this work in 2015.
