About This Scholarship

IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) offers several prestigious designations and recognitions for its members, including Life Member, History Member, and Fellow. Fellowship is a recognition primarily granted to individuals who have made significant advancements in the technical domain, while Life Membership and History Membership focus on the duration of IEEE membership and contributions to the historical aspects of engineering and technology.

The Life Member History Fellowship is sponsored by the IEEE Life Member’s Committee and offers a scholar in this field who has recently received their Ph.D. in the history of IEEE’s designated fields one year of full-time graduate study or one year of post-doctoral research.

Eligibility Criteria For IEEE-life-member-history-fellowship

Here are some general criteria that are often considered for fellowships:

  • IEEE Membership: Typically, applicants should be active IEEE members in good standing. However, for the Life Member History Fellowship, it may be specifically open to IEEE life members or individuals who have been IEEE members for a specific period.
  • Academic Background: Usually, fellowships are open to individuals who have completed or are pursuing advanced degrees (such as a Ph.D.) in a field related to electrical and computer science engineering. However, this may vary for the History Fellowship, as it may emphasize the historical aspect rather than strict academic requirements.
  • Research Proposal: Applicants are typically required to submit a research proposal outlining the objectives, methodology, and expected outcomes of their project. The proposal should align with the goals and scope of the specific fellowship.
  • Experience and Expertise: Demonstrated expertise or experience in the field of history, particularly as it relates to electrical and computer science engineering, may be an important consideration.
  • Letters of Recommendation: Applicants may be required to provide letters of recommendation from individuals familiar with their work, such as professors, supervisors, or colleagues.
