The IEEE Electron Devices Society invites nominations for the 2022 Ph.D., Masters, and Undergraduate Student Fellowships. These annual awards are given to promote, recognize, and support graduate, master's, and undergraduate level study and research within the EDS field of interest. The field of interest for EDS is in all aspects of engineering, physics, theory, experiment, and simulation of electron and ion devices involving insulators, metals, organic materials, plasmas, semiconductors, quantum-effect materials, vacuum, and emerging materials. Specific applications of these devices include bioelectronics, biomedical, computation, communications, displays, electro, and micromechanics, imaging, microactuators, optical, photovoltaics, power, sensors, and signal processing.
For both Ph.D. and Masters, it is expected that at least one fellowship will be awarded to a student in each of the following geographical regions: Americas, Asia/Pacific, and Europe/Middle East/Africa. For the Undergraduates, it is expected that at least one fellowship to each eligible student in each of the IEEE geographical Regions 8, 9, and 10 and two fellowships in Regions 1-7 not exceeding one from Region 7.

EDS Ph.D. Student Fellowship: US $5,000 and travel funds to attend the IEDM for the presentation of an award plaque
EDS Masters Student Fellowship: S $2,000 and an award plaque
EDS Undergraduate Student Scholarship: US $1,000 and an award plaque
Eligibility: Candidate must: be an IEEE EDS student member at the time of nomination; be accepted into a graduate program or within the first year of study in a graduate program in an EDS field of interest on a full-time basis; and continue his/her studies at a graduate education institution. Nominator must be an IEEE EDS member and preferably be serving as the candidate’s mentor or faculty advisor. Previous award winners are ineligible. This award cannot be given to a candidate for the same work for which an IEEE Technical Field Award or IEEE Medal was previously received.
Deadline: The closing date of the application is May 31, 2022.
Evaluation Criteria: Demonstration of his/her significant ability to perform research in the fields of electron devices and proven history of academic excellence in engineering and/or physics as well as being involved in undergraduate research and/or supervised projects.
Nominating letter by an EDS member who served as candidate’s mentor or faculty advisor.
A letter of recommendation from an individual familiar with the student’s research and educational credentials. Letters of recommendation cannot be from the nominator.
One-page biographical sketch of the student (including student's mailing address and e-mail address)
Two-page (maximum) statement by the student describing his or her education and research interests, accomplishments, and graduation date. This can include undergraduate, graduate, and summer internship research work.
One copy of the student’s transcripts/grades.
