Each year, Intel invests in universities around the globe to promote and encourage the best and brightest ideas and talent. As part of this initiative we are pleased to announce the 2013 U.S. awardees of the PhD Fellowship Program and the Early Career Faculty Honor Program. These programs seek to find the top PhD students and the top early career faculty at leading U.S. universities through a competitive and rigorous selection process. The recipients of these awards are an elite group who represent the future thought leaders in their respective areas of research.
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. Today’s program places an emphasis on developing students who are well aware of issues facing the computing industry. Every winning student is assigned a technical mentor at Intel who is also a leader in their field. Students are encouraged to work through their mentor and develop a deep understanding of the technical issues facing our world and to be on the forefront of solving the technical challenges that lie ahead. Intel is very proud to announce the list of this year’s winners – Congratulations to all!!!
The Early Career Faculty Honor Program is in its second year of operation and was created to identify and reward the top early career faculty at select universities around the world. The applicants for this program are typically within 4-5 years of starting their academic positions and they are selected for being thought leaders in their respective areas of research with fresh ideas and thinking.
