The IEEE Fellowship in the History of Electrical and Computing Technology

Scholarship Description

Candidates with undergraduate degrees in engineering, the sciences, or the humanities are eligible for the fellowship. For pre-doctoral applicants, however, the award is conditional upon the candidate’s good standing in an appropriate Ph.D.-granting graduate program. In addition, pre-doctoral recipients may not concurrently hold other fellowships, but they may earn up to $10,000 for work that is directly related to their graduate studies. Pre-doctoral fellows must pursue full-time graduate work and evidence of satisfactory academic performance is required. These restrictions do not apply to post-doctoral applicants. Post-doctoral applicants must be no more than four years from the award of their Ph.D. on the date the application is due. The Fellow is selected on the basis of the candidate’s potential for pursuing research in, and contributing to, electrical, engineering, and/or computing history. Applicants pursuing technical topics should demonstrate that they possess the necessary skills—for example, knowledge of programming languages or mathematical discipline. Such knowledge can be demonstrated through course work or experience.
The Fellow is selected on the basis of the candidate’s potential for pursuing research in and contributing to electrical history. The deadline for receipt of applications each year is 1 February. Applicants will be notified of the results by 1 June.
