IEEE Life Member Fellowship in History of Electrical and Computing Technology for 2017–2018

Deadline: February 01 2017

http://www.ieee.org/web/aboutus/history_center/about/fellowship.html

Updated: November 22 2016

The Fellowship supports one year of full-time graduate work in the history of electrical science and technology or closely related field at a college or university of recognized standing, or up to one year of post-doctoral research for a scholar in this field who has received his or her Ph.D. within the past four years. Recipients are normally expected to take up the Fellowship in the July of the year that it is awarded. The stipend is $17,000, with a research budget of up to $3,000. The IEEE Fellowship in History of Electrical and Computing Technology is funded by the IEEE Life Members’ Committee.

Candidates with undergraduate degrees in engineering, the sciences, or the humanities/social sciences are eligible for the fellowship. For pre-doctoral applicants, however, the award is conditional upon the candidate’s good standing in an appropriate in an appropriate PhD 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 PhD 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 they possess the necessary skills, for example: knowledge of programming languages or mathematical discipline. Such knowledge can be demonstrated through course work or experience.

Complete information and application forms are available on-line at http://www.ieee.org/web/aboutus/history_center/about/fellowship.html. The deadline for completed applications is 1 February 2017. Inquiries can also be sent to ieee-history@ieee.org.
