And the winners are….

Intel PhD Fellowship Program winners announced!

Intel drives and participates in a wide array of education-related programs worldwide whose goals are to improve the quality of education and train students to be future technology leaders themselves. The next generation Intel “Rock Stars” could come from one of these programs.

Today I want to talk about the Intel PhD Fellowship Program. The fellowship program was started in the early 90′s by Gordon Moore to recognize and honor top students for their leading edge research in areas that would benefit mankind; it was open to all fields of research. Gordon wanted to give back to those universities and communities who excelled at producing the top students. It was a way to build long lasting relationships with these universities, the professors and help create the next generation of technology leaders.

While we still seek the best of the best, the program has experienced some changes. Today’s program focuses on research in Intel’s technical areas; Hardware Systems Technology and Design, Software Technology and Design, and Semiconductor Technology and Manufacturing. Each student was carefully selected by their university and invited to apply for the Intel PhD Fellowship. Next, each application submitted to Intel was carefully reviewed and winners are picked by Intel Fellows and their designees. This year, 26 fellowships were awarded. This is a very prestigious award, and winning students are recognized as being tops in their areas of research. Without further adieu, here is the list of this year’s winners – Congratulations to each one of you!!!

“Research is the key to developing next-generation technologies. Intel works with universities worldwide which enables the advancement of technology.”

    Interesting. Congratulations to the winners!
    I didn’t know about this program. Do you have any postdoc fellowships for theoretical semiconductor physics? :)
