Scholarship Fund Created to Entice Broadcast Engineering Students


TowerIn order to attract more students to broadcast engineering, the IEEE Broadcast Technology Society and the scholarship fund of the Association of Federal Communications Consulting Engineers have created the Jules Cohen Memorial Scholarship Fund.

“Today’s engineering students represent the future of our industry, and these scholarships are only the latest example of the society’s commitment to fostering their educations and career development,” said Bill Hayes, president, IEEE BTS.

The fund is named after the late Jules Cohen, an IEEE Fellow and BTS member who was also a long-time member and past president of AFCCE.

Beginning in spring 2017, the Jules Cohen Memorial Scholarship will be awarded up to twice a year in conjunction with the spring and fall academic semesters. Scholarships will be either $5,000 or $10,000 for both undergraduate and graduate students, based on qualifications, financial need, and number of qualified applicants. Applicants must be enrolled in an engineering or related technical curriculum at an accredited U.S. university and demonstrate a good academic record; undergraduates must have junior or senior standing.

Applications for the spring 2017 semester will be accepted from Sept. 1 through Oct. 31.
