Class of 2018
2018 GSF Recipients
(L to R) Shen, Yan, Hellstrom (Chair), Katam, Lee (not shown: Otten, Zappatore)

The IEEE CSC Graduate Study Fellowship in Applied Superconductivity is awarded annually to a full-time graduate student pursuing a PhD (or equivalent) degree in the area of applied superconductivity at an accredited college or university of recognized standing worldwide. Beginning in 2019, an individual can only receive the Fellowship one time.

Applications must be received no later than February 8th of the year for which the Award may be granted.

Prize:
Each IEEE CSC Graduate Study Fellowship in Applied Superconductivity will consist of an honorarium of US$ 5,000, a suitably inscribed certificate, and a complimentary membership (or renewal) in IEEE and one of CSC's sponsoring Societies.
Funding:
IEEE Council on Superconductivity will provide the funding for these awards:
- Each Award will have an associated honorarium of US $5,000.
- Funds for this award will be provided by the IEEE Council on Superconductivity.
- The maximum number of awards in a given year will be determined by the number of highly qualified candidates and the total Fellowship budget provided by the Council on Superconductivity for that year.
- The IEEE Council on Superconductivity’s budget will remain net positive with the inclusion of funding for these fellowships.
Presentation:
Awards may be announced at the Applied Superconductivity Conference, at the Magnet Technology conference, or at other events designated by the President of the IEEE Council on Superconductivity.
Basis for Judgement:
Award recipients will be selected based upon, in rank order: the quality of their prior work, the impact of their current research, the impact of their potential research in superconductivity, and their financial need. If a conflict of interest for any voting member or ex-officio member is identified with respect to an application for an award, such as an application from a student with institutional or familial ties to the member, the member shall excuse themselves from the selection process for the application.
Eligibility:
To be eligible, the recipient must be pursuing full-time graduate work at an accredited college/university and pursuing or planning to pursue research activities in applied superconductivity. The applicant must have majored in engineering, materials, chemistry, physics or a related area and have received a Bachelor's Degree or equivalent from an accredited college of recognized standing worldwide. Applicants are required to submit a completed application, certified transcripts (can be received electronically) from all colleges/universities attended, and three letters of recommendation, to include the applicant’s thesis advisor (if applicable), at least one educator (who could be the thesis advisor), or a recent employer (if work was technical in nature) who can provide first-hand information about the strength of the application. Award recipients will be selected based on the quality of their prior work, the impact of their current research or the impact of their potential research in superconductivity, and their financial need. We expect to distribute the Awards equally across the electronics, materials and large-scale areas of superconductivity. In addition, the awards will be distributed across a diverse range of universities or colleges in terms of applications and geographical location. The Eligibility and Selection process shall comply with procedures and regulation established in IEEE and Council governing documents, particularly with IEEE Policy 4.4 on Awards Limitations.
