The IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS) established the Ph.D. Student Fellowship Program to promote, recognize, and support graduate level study and research within EDS.
At least one fellowship will be awarded to students in each of the following geographical regions every year: Americas, Europe/Mid-East/Africa, Asia-Pacific.
The field of interest for EDS is all aspects of the physics, engineering, theory and phenomena of electron and ion devices such as elemental and compound semiconductor devices, organic and other emerging materials based devices, quantum effect devices, optical devices, displays and imaging devices, photovoltaics, solid-state sensors and actuators, solid-state power devices, high frequency devices, micromechanics, tubes and other vacuum devices.
US$7,000 to the student and travel subsidy of up to US$3,000 to each recipient to attend the IEDM for presentation of award plaque. The EDS Newsletter will feature articles about the EDS Graduate Fellows and their work over the course of the next year.
Candidate must: be an IEEE EDS student member at the time of nomination; be pursuing a doctorate degree within the EDS field of interest on a full-time basis; and continue his/her studies at the current institution with the same faculty advisor for twelve months after receipt of award. Nominator must be an IEEE EDS member. Previous award winners are ineligible.
Demonstration of his/her significant ability to perform independent research in the fields of electron devices and a proven history of academic excellence.
