IEEE CSC Graduate Study Fellowship in Applied Superconductivity
The fellowship is awarded annually to a full-time graduate student currently pursuing a PhD (or equivalent) degree in the area of applied superconductivity, at an accredited college or university of recognized standing worldwide. The intention of the award is to encourage students to enter and contribute to the field of applied superconductivity.
Award recipients will be selected based upon, in rank order: the quality of their prior work, the impact of their current research, impact of their potential research in superconductivity and their financial need. If a conflict of interest for any voting member or ex-officio member is identified
with respect to an application for award, such as an application from a student with institutional or familial ties to the member, the member shall recuse themselves from the selection process for the application.
Each IEEE CSC Graduate Study Fellowship in Applied Superconductivity will consist of an honorarium of US$ 5,000 and a suitably inscribed certificate.
To be eligible, the recipient must be pursuing full-time graduate work at an accredited college/university and pursuing or planning to pursue research activities in applied superconductivity for the entire calendar year during the year that the award is given. The applicant must have majored in engineering, materials, chemistry, physics or a related area and have received a Bachelor's Degree, or equivalent, from an accredited college of recognized standing worldwide. Applicants are required to submit certified transcripts from all colleges/universities attended and three letters of recommendation from college/university professors familiar with the applicant's work. Award recipients will be selected based upon the quality of their prior work, the impact of their current research or the impact of their potential research in superconductivity, and their financial need. We expect to distribute the Awards equally across the electronics, materials and large-scale areas of superconductivity. In addition, the awards will be distributed across a diverse range of universities or colleges in terms of applications and geographical location. The CSC Graduate Fellowship in Applied Superconductivity can only be awarded to an individual once.
Nominations will be solicited by announcements at major applied superconductivity conferences such as the Applied Superconductivity Conference (ASC) and the Magnet Technology (MT) Conference, on their websites, on the IEEE Council on Superconductivity’s website, and on other websites, in relevant publications, or at other events designated by the president of the IEEE Council on Superconductivity.
