CLaSP PhD candidate to receive Rackham’s Teh-Hsun Lee Award

Climate & Space PhD candidate Doğa Can Su Öztürk has been selected to receive the annual Teh-Hsun Lee Award from U-M’s Rackham Graduate School. The award carries a cash stipend to be paid in the Spring/Summer term.

The Teh-Hsun Lee Award is presented annually to a Rackham student in the memory of Dr. Teh-Hsun Lee, who was a proud Michigan alumnus.

Dr. Lee earned three degrees in Chemical Engineering from the U-M, culminating with a PhD in 1954. Both he and his wife Mang-Shuen wanted to ensure that future students would have the same educational opportunities that they had experienced at Michigan, so they left a bequest to Rackham Graduate School to support international graduate students in engineering and the sciences. Dr. Lee passed away in 2011 at the age of 94. 

Congratulations, Doğa!
