Scholarships Available for Student Chapter Members
LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 4 August, 2010 – Applications are being accepted until 30 September for the Merwin Scholarship, an award for active members of IEEE Computer Society student branch chapters.
The Merwin scholarship was created in honor of the late Richard E. Merwin, past president of the society, to recognize and reward active leaders in the IEEE Computer Society student branch chapters, who show promise in their academic and professional efforts.
The selected winners of the award will have the opportunity to serve as IEEE Computer Society Student Ambassadors for their particular IEEE region. Student Ambassadors are responsible for collecting and disseminating information to student chapters in their regions. They also serve as a liaison between student members and the Member and Geographic Activities Board (MGAB).
More than one dozen scholarships of up to US $2,000 each are available, for one academic year. The deadline for submission is 30 September.
Graduate students, juniors, and seniors in electrical or computer engineering, computer science, information technology, or a well-defined computer related field who are active members of a Computer Society student branch chapter are eligible.
