SRC Fellowships and Scholarships for those interested in a Ph.D. or Master’s related to semi-conductor research

November 7, 2011

The Semi-Conductor Research Corporation (SRC) provides doctoral and master’s fellowships to “[supply] a relevantly educated workforce for the semiconductor industry.”

Doctoral Fellowships:

Support

GFP Fellowships provide full tuition and fees and a competitive stipend for up to five years of doctoral study. Fellowships also include an unrestricted annual gift of $2,000 for use by the student’s faculty advisor in support of the student. The Fellowships will continue to completion of the degree program, but for no more than five years. Continuation will be contingent only upon satisfactory progress in the proposed course of study and research as determined by the faculty advisor and GRC.

A limited number of Fellowships are set aside in this competition for students just beginning their graduate research and having no connection to GRC-funded contracts. These Fellowships may be awarded to students planning to attend universities where GRC has funded research and where a good technical match seems likely. These Fellowships are for one year. If the recipient is able to join a research program approved by GRC during that year, the Fellowship will continue for up to four additional years. If the student is unable to find an appropriate placement with a GRC-approved research program, the Fellowship will end after one year.

Eligibility

The fellowships are open to students who:

-are U.S. citizens or have permanent resident, refugee, or political asylum status in the U.S.;
-are pursuing or planning to pursue a Ph.D. degree with research relevant to microelectronics under the guidance of a GRC-approved faculty member and with at least two years to completion of the doctoral degree;
-will be performing research under a sponsored research program approved by GRC; and
-are willing to provide a copy of his/her Ph.D. dissertation to GRC for publication to the SRC website.

It is expected that all Fellows will complete their Ph.D. degrees in an area relevant to microelectronics and that upon completion of the program, are encouraged to secure employment with an SRC member or U.S. government agency or a faculty position in an accredited four-year U.S. college or university.

Master’s Fellowships

The Master’s Scholarship Program (MSP) addresses issues of improving educational opportunities at the master’s level for students in underrepresented minority categories. …The Master’s Scholarship Program was created in 1997 for the purpose of attracting qualified students who are also in underrepresented minority categories to graduate study in areas of interest to the semiconductor industry. In 1999, the program was opened to women as a category and has since been opened to underrepresented students holding refugee or political asylum status in the U.S.

The MSP Scholarships provide full tuition and fees and a competitive stipend for up to two years of master’s level study. Scholarships also include an unrestricted gift of $2,000 for use by the student’s faculty advisor in support of the student. The Scholarships will continue to completion of the degree program, but for no more than two years. Continuation will be contingent only upon satisfactory progress in the proposed course of study and research as determined by the faculty advisor and GRC.

Eligibility

The MSP is open to students who:

-are women or are members of an underrepresented minority category (African-American, Hispanic, Native American);
-meet admission requirements for graduate school at a GRC-participating university;
-are U.S. citizens or have permanent resident, refugee, or political asylum status in the U.S.;
-are planning to pursue a master’s degree with research relevant to microelectronics under the guidance of a GRC-approved faculty member and under a GRC-approved research program; and
-are willing to provide a copy of his/her master’s thesis where appropriate for publication to the SRC secure website.

Application deadline: mid-February
