A $25,000 scholarship fund has been established by Ball State economics professor Chu-Yuan Cheng and his wife, Alice, to provide scholarships to incoming freshmen majoring in economics or mathematical economics.

Chu-Yuan Cheng, a Ball State professor since 1971, is the author of more than 30 books on the Chinese economy and has published more than 100 articles in academic journals. In 1973, he created a university core course on economic and political problems in emerging nations, and in 1976, he received the Outstanding Research Award.

Availability of the Dr. Chu-Yuan and Alice Cheng Merit Endowment Scholarship is dependent upon an award selection process established by Ball State and its academic departments. For specifics about this scholarship, contact the economics department at 765-285-5360.
