> The IEEE History Center offers three different programs of support 
> annually for young scholars pursuing the history of electrical 
> engineering and computing:  An Internship for an advanced 
> undergraduate, graduate student, or recent Ph.D.; a Dissertation 
> Fellowship for an advanced graduate student or recent Ph.D.; and a 
> Post-Doctoral Fellowship for a recent Ph.D.  The Internship and the 
> Dissertation Fellowship are funded by the IEEE Life Members Committee; 
> the Post-Doc is funded by Rutgers University.  The Internship and the 
> Post-Doc require residence at the IEEE History Center, on the Rutgers 
> University Campus in New Brunswick, New Jersey; there is no residency 
> requirement for the Dissertation Fellowship.  The Post-Doctoral 
> Fellowship is currently filled, but the IEEE History Center is pleased 
> to announce the competitions for the other two 2004 awards:
> IEEE Fellowship In Electrical History­Academic Year 2004/2005
> The IEEE Fellowship in Electrical History supports either one year of 
> full-time graduate work in thehistory of electrical science and 
> technology at a college or university of recognized standing, or up to 
> one year of post-doctoral research for a scholar in this field who has 
> received his Ph.D. within the past three years. This award is 
> supported by the IEEE Life Members Committee. The stipend is $17,000, 
> with a research budget of $3,000 also supplied.
> Candidates with undergraduate degrees in engineering, the sciences, or 
> the humanities are eligible for the Fellowship. For pre-doctoral 
> applicants, however, the award is conditional upon acceptance of the 
> candidate into an appropriate graduate program in history at a school 
> of recognized standing. In addition,
> pre-doctoral recipients may not hold or subsequently receive other 
> fellowships, but they may earn up to $5,000 for work that is directly 
> related to their graduate studies. Pre-doctoral Fellows must pursue 
> full-time graduate work and evidence of satisfactory academic 
> performance is required. These restrictions do not apply to 
> post-doctoral applicants.
> The Fellow is selected on the basis of the candidate's potential for 
> pursuing research in and contributing to electrical history.  
> Application forms are available on-line or by request from the IEEE 
> History Center (see contact information below).  The deadline for 
> completed applications is 1 February.  This completed application 
> packet should be sent to the Chairman, IEEE Fellowship in Electrical 
> History Committee, IEEE History Center, Rutgers­The State University 
> of New Jersey, 39 Union Street, New Brunswick, NJ 08901-8538.  
> Applicants will be notified of the results by 1 May 2003.
> The IEEE Fellowship in Electrical Engineering History is administered 
> by the IEEE History Committee and supported by the IEEE Life Members 
> Committee.
> IEEE History Center Internship­2004
> Scholars at the beginning of their career studying the history of 
> electrical technology and computing are invited to contact the Center 
> to be considered for a paid Internship at the Center's offices on the 
> Rutgers University campus in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
> The Intern program seeks to provide research experience for graduate 
> students in the history of electrical and computer technologies, while 
> enlisting the help of promising young scholars for the Center's 
> projects. The Intern generally works full-time for two months at the 
> History Center on a Center project that is connected to his or her own 
> area of interest. This time is usually during the summer, but other 
> arrangements will be considered.  Interns are also encouraged to 
> consult with the Center's staff and its associates, and guided to 
> research resources in the area. The Internship is designed for those 
> near the beginning or middle of their graduate careers, but advanced 
> undergraduates, advanced graduates, and, on rare occasions, recent 
> Ph.D.s will also be considered.  Special consideration is often given 
> to scholars from outside the United States who might not otherwise 
> have an opportunity to visit historical resources in this country.
> The stipend paid to the intern is US$3,500.  Additional funds may be 
> available to defray travel costs, depending on the Intern’s 
> circumstances.  This Internship is supported by the IEEE Life Members 
> Committee.
> There is no formal application form. To apply, please mail a 
> curriculum vitae showing your studies in electrical history along with 
> a cover letter describing the sort of project you would be interested 
> in doing (see contact information below).  The deadline for contacting 
> the IEEE History Center is 15 March 2004.
> IEEE is an AA/EO employers.  Women and minorities are encouraged to 
> apply for all positions.
> The IEEE History Center is cosponsored by the Institute of Electrical 
> and Electronics Engineers, Inc. (IEEE)­the world’s largest 
> professional technical society­, and Rutgers­the State University of 
> New Jersey.  The mission of the Center is to preserve, research, and 
> promote the legacy of electrical engineering and computing.  The
