IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Graduate Fellowship Award

To support and encourage graduate-level research in the area of Instrumentation and Measurement.

Award Selection Committee

Total yearly grant budget of $45,000 USD; Maximum of $15,000 USD per grant winner. Award certificate to each selected applicant. Complimentary Instrumentation and Measurement (I&M) Student Membership starting in September of the Grant year and including 2 subsequent years.
Funded by the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society.
Grant recipients will be announced at the annual I²MTC Conference Awards Banquet. Formal notification of the grant will be sent to the recipients, department and university administrators by May 15 (grant year).
Basis for Judging:
• Nominating letter from candidate’s graduate advisor.
• Two letters of recommendation from someone (other than the nominator) familiar with the candidate’s research and education qualifications.
• One-page biographical summary of the candidate. Include the student’s IEEE membership number.
• Two-page maximum professional/academic summary CV of the graduate advisor. Include the advisor’s IEEE membership number.
• Unofficial copy of the candidate’s transcript. Include an explanation if the grading system differs from the A to F format.
• One page (single-spaced) statement, written by the candidate, outlining the education and research goals and accomplishments. This can include summer internship experience, undergraduate, and graduate work.
• Research proposal, no more than 5 single-spaced pages, that specifically provides the following information:
• Title page containing the title, University name, and contact information of the faculty member submitting the nominating package and the candidate. Include email addresses and phone numbers.
• Objectives, approach, and estimated start and completion dates.
• The anticipated type of paper (short or full) for the final report must be identified.
• Budget for the project. Explicitly outline how the funds from this Fellowship will be allocated with a line-item budget justification. Budgets must follow these guidelines: 1) No portion of the budget can provide faculty salary 2) Up to $2,000 can be included in the project budget for the recipient to attend I2MTC. Travel to other conferences, symposia, workshops, etc. is not allowed. Any other travel requests must be explicitly justified in your budget.
• A letter of support from the faculty member’s department/institution administrator must be submitted (not to be counted as part of the 5-page proposal). This letter must include an explicit statement about the fact that no institutional indirect cost (of any type) will be assessed by the recipient’s institution.
• Candidate must be at minimum, a student member of the IEEE. Candidate’s advisor must be a member of the IEEE and the I&M Society.
• Previous grant recipients are not eligible for a period of two years after receiving the grant.
• No more than one nomination per graduate advisor will be considered.
• Both candidate and Advisor must exhibit actions that reflect positively on and enhance the reputation of the I&M Society.
