The deadline (September 30) is rapidly approaching for those undergraduate and graduate students interested in applying for this round of scholarships.
Webinar on Scholarships
In 2017, Peter Mager, Vice Chair of the IEEE Computer Society Membership and Geographic Activities Board, gave a webinar on tips and guidelines for submitting applications for scholarships and awards. He included a section specifically on the Richard E. Merwin Student Scholarship that can be a great benefit to students applying for the scholarship. See the video below.
About the Richard E. Merwin Student Scholarship
The Richard E. Merwin Student Scholarship was established to honor past President Richard E. Merwin, a pioneer in the field of computer engineering. It is open to graduate and undergraduate students in their final two years of electrical or computer engineering, computer science, or a well-defined computer-related field of engineering who are also active members of an IEEE Student Branch or Student Branch Chapter.
The IEEE Computer Society awards the scholarship in two cycles, each with roughly 18 winners. Applications are evaluated based on IEEE and extracurricular activities, academic achievement, letters of recommendation, and the student’s IEEE Computer Society Vision Statement.
In addition to the monetary award, winners receive mentoring and guidance, and they serve as IEEE Computer Society student ambassadors, who help their student branch chapter, section, and regions become more active in the society through the development of new initiatives, such as encouraging participation in activities like IEEEXtreme, IEEE MadC, creation of new student branch chapters, and starting up regional/national or local newsletters.
We look forward to receiving your application.
