NEW: Inaugural Women in Spectrum Scholarship program for NSC members

National Spectrum Consortium is pleased to announce its inaugural Women in Spectrum Scholarship program. NSC intends to name at least 5 Spectrum Scholars this year. With this program, NSC is hoping to further develop the pipeline of talented women engineers entering fields related to spectrum and communications. This effort is designed to encourage women scholars to continue to pursue careers in spectrum research and development. We have been asked to extend the deadline for applications, and we have also extended the availability of this opportunity to women in any year of their engineering training (it was previously designated for first-year students).

The Executive Committee of the NSC will select women as Spectrum Scholars who are excellent students majoring in electrical engineering at an ABET-accredited university in the United States. Eligible candidates for the program should also have a direct family connection to an NSC member organization.  Spectrum Scholars will be awarded a US$1,500 scholarship as well as up to US$1,000 travel stipend to attend the 2022 IEEE MILCOM conference for an awards ceremony. In addition, Spectrum Scholars will be invited to connect with NSC Executive Committee members and others for mentorship opportunities.

To be considered as a Spectrum Scholar, please fill out the application using the link below. Applications are due on 16 September 2022, and an announcement of the winners will be made by the end of September followed by an awards ceremony at the 2022 MILCOM conference, 28 November – 2 December 2022.
